Question Intermintent Failsafe & Rough Idle

Aright I put a cap on the check engine light and failsafe light. It needed TPS, O2, Knock.
But now you have to drive for a while or let it sit in drive for Failsafe to turn on. Gets hot around center shift and has a little burn smell. Changed Fluid and Filter Could it be low? If you turn car off and start light is out but after awhile comes on again.
NEXT Has a rough idle upon start up then smooths out. When yo drop it in drive sounds like you put a cam in it(If you ever ownd a camaro or mustang) Any Suggestions?
