    If it makes a rattling sound when it initially starts up after a cold start it may be a sign of bad connecting rod bearings in the engine or maybe less important a rattling exhaust heat shield or exhaust component.Pops out of gear could be shift linkage issue but more than likely an internal gearbox problem.
