I hear and feel a thump when accelerating too fast from a stop. No thump if starting slowly. No problems accelerating once car is going. What could be causing this? Thump seems to be in the rear.

Transmission mounts are worn out and most likely your motor mounts too. Pretty straight forward job to replace but sometimes the bolts holding the motor mounts will be stuck requiring an impact wrench. Problem is that there is no room to get the impact near these bolts making a lift necessary.

Most cars have a rev limiter built in and will not let the engine goe past 4000 rpm's you may want to change out the spark plugs as often if it has flooded just once the plugs do foul out

Take your car to a mechanic or your local auto parts superstore and have them read/scan the codes for the reason for the check engine light. A good place to start.

Maybe check for loose u-joints, transmission mount, or carrier bearing if you have a two piece driveshaft.
