it shakes every time shifting into 2nd gear its a v8, 4.7 liter 4x4 it only does it with 2nd gear

ive replaced the IAC, TPS, and crank PS already and nothing has worked. Ive got gas and a spark so I really dont know what it could be. 1/2 the time when it cuts out, the check engine light comes on and sometimes even the brake and ABS lights will come on. Usually once its cooled down for 20, 30 min, it starts right up, just not for long till it cuts out again

Glowing white and black smoke periodically

My Dakota has a bad ticking coming from the engine area it seems like its a lifter can I adjust it or is that what it seems to be ,it idels rapidly when its getting driven for a few,check engine light comes on

What sound does it make

sometimes the shifting problem will go away, but chattering and squeaking stay.

The battery was dead and had to be jumped. How do I get the computer to do the self test so I can get my certificate and complete my registration?

Vehicle is in 4WD and cannot disconnect because the shift lever is disconnected, how can I reconnect it?

180,000+ miles. Code "no bus" came up with engine light on dash when it would not restart, then next day I turned key in ignition and without turning it over 3x(on/off)and odometer said "p done". What do these mean?
