Default So many leaks and issues. Please help me validate the cause

Hey Guys,

I've been doing some reading and I was hoping some people can help me validate the following symptoms and the possible cause.
The car is a 1999 T6 with +200k

#1. I have had very bad engine sputter when engine is warmed up. Drives fine until idle. Then just a few days ago I had the Limp home issue, but the car idled perfectly at low RPM!

Is this an ETM issue? I'm no longer under warranty now...so I guess a rebuild from XeMoDex is the cheaper/better option. From what I read, the work for this isn't too bad that a newby can't work on it.

#2. Coolant leaks into driver side carpet. I hear this is an o-ring issue since its on the drivers side and not the passenger side (heater core)

#3. Slow oil leak. I noticed it on the floor, it seems to be a very slow leak.
So this could just be a oil pan gasket that needs replacing?

Thanks guys
