I'm not too mechanically inclined, but here's an overview of what i've observed.

Running rough, is noticeable in Park, Neutral, and Reverse, but as soon as you shift into Drive, 1st, 2nd, or 3rd, the noise becomes twice as loud.

Whenever the car is stopped, and i accelerate, I hear a short clunk or knock as soon as i get above 5 mph, maybe while it's shifting.

The car randomly misfires, The only time it consistently does it is usually going up hills.

I'm not sure if one problem is dependent on the other or if they are all connected but any input anyone has would be greatly appreciated.
