Jeep Liberty - Funny issue with transmission need advice

I have a Jeep Liberty 3.7L. I noticed a few months back I started having a strange exhaust smell after putting some pressure on the engine. Like when I drive up hill and stop at a guard post to get on base is at a 45 degree incline. Then a few yards later I am level again and I get the exhaust smell coming from my A/C. I'd also note I had to go through a lot of deep pot holes to get to parking on base nearly every day. However, today I was driving and my transmission light came on. for the past couple weeks I noticed a slight squeaking sound when I go into reverse and when making turns when I first start driving. I checked my fluids. Oils really low and needs changed, but the transmission fluid is good and so is my coolant. What do you think it could be?

    First of all, you need to get the codes. Without them your shooting in the dark. oreillys or autozone will check em for free. IF it is a tranny issue it should give a code.
    Secondly define smell. What does it smell like. Exhuast has no smell.
    Third the cranking issue should show up in codes. It could be a sensor issue or most likely a fuel issue.

    Come back with the codes and i can help you go further.
