Well not had much to do with these myself, however if there is smoke coming out of the dipstick for the auto box, then it sounds like it is burning its oil which is very bad. Had you just been for a drive before hand?? Not sure of the procedure for checking the oil level, whether it has to be hot or cold etc as they may be different from the autos i work on,but i would be checking it asap.

The dropping 2 gears sounds normal, as you would be using the "kickdown". function. However the burning and smoke is not normal. It could be simply a slight leak which is burning off when the gear box gets hot, but i would advise you get the thing looked at.

Smell the auto fluid on the dipstick. If it smells burnt then you may need to start looking at autobox rebuilds.
