I wouldgo to the garage and get them to look at it.
It sounds like its near the end of its life and 1 of your cylinders may have broken.
Does it make a different sound?
You may just need a new cooler or most likely a new battery.

Moter vibrat when i acclerate

Have the fault codes read. Replace faulty items. Use only genuine items as non-genuine replacement are not always compatible with the OEM fitted CPU units. Look for missing from coils .ht leads and plugs-injectors and low fuel pressure problems.

Car runs perfect then starts missing real bad then stalls

Not unusual for fuel pumps to begin to fail once they are heated up from running. First thing in the morning pump is cool, then as you drive, it heats up and begins to lose pressure. After sitting a 1/2hr-1hr, it may start again and run fine for a short time and start to act up again. Had similar problem and found good fuel pressure when tank and pump cool, but lost pressure once vehicle driven a distance and pump heated up. The hotter the weather, the shorter the distance I could drive. If you can somehow set it up to have fuel pressure checked when it starts to act up, that would certainly help confirm if fuel pressure is the culprit.

My car is making a whining noise when acclerating and when i turned it off this morning smoke started coming out of the hood.

sounds like your belt got some oil on it try cleaning it off with some water and see if this works if not i would buy a new belt and put/have it put on and see if this works, last thing to check is the idler pulley this will some times make the noise

Engine starts very hard. Misses and sputters badly when I try to acclerate. I can get it to go by pushing very lightly on the accelerator. Seems to work slightly better when warm. Any ideas? TIA

hi when was the last tim the vehicle had a service? could just be that it needs new spark plugs,fuel filter could be slightly blocked i would start with a general service first

Car idling to high when acclerating and extra low

Sounds like a sensor, probably not harmful to drive the car. If you hook up a diagnostic scanner it will give you a code, and if it's a better scanner, it'll tell you a general idea where the problem is coming from. From research that I've done, it sounds like a pulse generator.

If you don't have a scanner, maybe a friend does? or a diagnostic shop which costs some money.

I have a 02 Sport Trac that starts and idles fine but when I put it in gear and try to acclerate it just dies and has a strong odor of rotten eggs if I let off gas and gently acclerate it will do about...

That right you nailed it 100% go to the muffler shop and get it fixed. BUT if you want it is easy to test remove the O2 sensor before the cat and see if there is an improvement in power. If there is then leave them out and that will allow you to safely get to the muffler shop and advod towing it up there.
