My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
I would have the engine cradle inspected for any cracks or damage as well as the fuel system for any leaks or anything causing any running issues.Inspect the transmission fluid and make sure it isn't burned or full of metal and check the wheel bearings for any excess play as well as tie rod ends.
Thanks Pete
