Sounds like a possible bad cytalitic converter in the exhaust system.

The catalytic converter may be coming apart inside - the loose catalyst could be moving around and intermittently blocking the exhaust. A malfunctioning Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve could also be part of the problem. Sometimes carbon buildup in the exhaust manifold can cause trouble, but usually this causes stalling upon acceleration after coasting down a hill.
Put your hand near the exhaust pipe outlet while a helper starts the engine. If the exhaust flow is highly variable in volume (not just simply on-off as it would be for a cylinder misfire), you definitely need to check for exhaust blockage.
Fuel delivery problems (e. g. pressure bleed-down followed by fuel vaporization in the line) can cause hot start problems, but that doesn't account for the odd noise under the vehicle.

Wow! The engine is running like **** with misfire codes? I think that's what you were trying to say. First, stop all the "miricle cures in a can"...fuel injector cleaners, K&N filters and the such. They will only do more harm than good. Next, replace your distributor. Honda igniters are notorious for causing the symptoms (and codes) you are describing and they are only serviced in a complete distributor assembly.

2000 Astro Random Misfire


This sounds like a classic GM plugged catalytic converter symptom. If you like you could remove the oxygen sensor in front of the cat and try driving it. With the sensor removed, the exhaust can escape a little more easily and will drive better if the cat is the problem. If you have the right fitting and a gauge, you could actually measure the back pressure at the oxygen sensor hole. It should not be any higher than about 2 psi at 3000 rpm. I have seen this problem several times now on these vans and I'm almost certain this is your problem.
Hope this helps,
Dave

Car runs greAt BUT FLASHES LITE PO300 P1781


P0300 is a random engine misfire code. P 1781 is a transmission code, but it refers to a malfunctioning engine speed signal (crankshaft angle sensor). A bad crankshaft angle sensor or camshaft angle sensor can cause the P0300 code. A large list of items can cause a P0300 code, but since you have both, I'd be checking the crankshaft angle sensor and the related circuit. Sometimes, the mounting screws loosen up, which can cause the sensor to not function properly, all the time. Get this fixed, because over a period of 4 to 6 months, this can destroy the catalytic converter in the exhaust system ($$$$)
