WAGON LONG HARD SHIFTS FROM 1ST TO 2ND, 2TO3

1991 Oldsmobile Other

I recently got this car, the first 350 miles were great, started on the coldest morning, ran and shifted great.

Now the first 20 miles it runs and shifts great, after 20 miles it starts to hesitate and sputter when accelerating and the shifts from 1st to 2nd are 3000+ rpm's and hard shifts.

Then Service Engine Soon Light came on for about 10 seconds, but I did not see it again.

10 miles from home I added a bottle of fuel injection cleaner to a full tank of gas.

By the time I got home it did not want to accelerate, I parked it and checked the exhaust coming from the tailpipe and it was very hot.

The next day I tried to start it and it cranks, but will not
start.

Fluids Levels are good, the gauges work and were in normal range.
