MERCURY MOUNTAINEER DOME LIGHT PROBLEM

2003 Mercury Mountaineer • 178,000 miles

So here's what happened: Note my service engine soon light has been on for awhile now : /
when I start it I could hear a "rattling" sound coming from the front drivers side. Stopped at a light, the car feels like its bouncing until I start moving again and reach a certain speed. Then while driving 45mph I step on the gas and I can no longerbaccelerate.I end up pulling over and shut the car off. I start it back up and it starts but immediately dies but I still am able to use dome lights, windows and radio. What's causing this.I can't seem to get a straight answer and cant take it anywhere for a diagnostic check since this is my only vehicle. Please help!
