It may be your catalytic converter. Ours did the same thing with an automatic transmission. We sometimes thought it was the transmission, then we received a recall on the converter. Took it in to be replaced, and no more rattling.

This likely means that your transmission is going out.

There are several things that can cause your manual transmission not to shift out of first gear or reverse. The most common cause is a broken shifting fork.

his is a trick question.. there is no "park" with a manual transmission.. either it's in gear, or it's in neutral.

An s-10 transmission with no reverse most likely has an internal problem. The shifter fork or a gear issue can cause no transmission reverse.

Manual transmissions use a variety of oils: regular motor oil, heavyweight hypoid gear oil or even automatic transmission fluid in some cases. Your owner's manual will tell you what your transmission calls for. If you don't have an owner's manual, either get one or call your local Ford dealer for the proper lubricant. Using the wrong lubricant can cause serious damage to the transmission.

Sounds like your transmission is seriously slipping and in need of repair. Above is correct, but if you have a manual, it may be the clutch instead of the transmission.

A corroded distributor cap and rotor will cause a vehicle to be difficult if not impossible to start and may cause the motor to run rough. If a manual transmission is jerky the clutch slave cylinder or clutch may need replacing ( clutch slipping ). It would also do to check the clutch lines for leaking fluid.

if manual transmission it will cause undue wear on the throw out bearing

The most likely cause of transmission fluid coming up the filler tube is air in the fluid. This can be caused by a leak in the system and should be checked by a mechanic as soon as possible.

Oil is cold and thick due to ambient temperature as transmission heats up oil thins out

Transmission fluid acts differently in manual and automatic transmissions. In a manual transmission it lubricates the gears and thrust bearings. Generally older manual transmission use a heavier weight lubricant ( 75 to 90 weight ) and some require non hypoid or GL 1 - GL3 oil so as not to destroy any yellow metals. Newer manual transmissions use GL 4 and GL 5 oils and may require multiple viscosity fluid. Automatic transmission fluid lubricates parts and also acts as hydraulic fluid. There are different grades and ratings usually signified as ATF and/or Dextron. Use your repair or owners manual to select the appropriate type of fluid. Using the wrong type can cause severe and costly damage to your transmission. Check your fluid level in your automatic transmission often. If your transmission is a manual, replace the fluid according to the maintenance schedule in your manual religiously.

I'm getting a rattling sound, too. But my problem is in my speakers. I'd have to guess you either need new speakers, or your problem could be in the hatch door. A friend of mine had that problem. His hatch window was loose or something, and that rattled, and eventually leaked. Hope that helped.

Many problems could cause the car to stop accelerating. If the engine is running OK, then check a manual transmission for clutch problems, and an automatic transmission for possible slipping bands.

Rattling under the hood can be something easy to fix to something bad. It could be loose bolts, bearings, pulleys, or it could be interior in the motor.

The seal lips, in the transmission have been ripped - if the oil coming from there - seals would have to be replaced.

No. Well, maybe in an extreme case assuming you can't push the vehicle in neutral and you have a manual transmission.....
