damsel n distress

Other than getting a new car, please direct me n right direction. I have a Mercedes-Benz S420 and have the following issues:
-when doors locked, passenger rear doesn't lock
-trunk handle is stuck in "out" position
-if not started every few hours the battery has to be jumped (starts immediately)
-when driving it wobbles, when braking it grinds
-asr, abs lights on
-last time jumped, speedometer stopped working
-rear air vent blows cold air even when heater turned on or turned off
-loosing brake fluid but no visible leak
-sluggish on acceleration
-steering wheel shake severe between 40-50mph
-burning smell
-white smoke from rear

Blimey;

1. Bad battery
2. Change the vacuum pump in the trunk.
3. Check the brake pads.
4. Change the master cylinder and servo unit for brakes.
5. Compression test the engine as it appears to be burning oil.
6. Four wheel balance.
7. Change the front left wheel speed sensor.

And this is starters for 10.
