My car engine shakes violently and causes the whole car to shake. It stops shaking when I take it to 2revs. It also makes a ticking/clanging noise when I accelerate. And its constantly making like a tractor noise. What is wrong? It also makes a ticking/clanging noise when I accelerate. And its constantly making like a tractor noise. What is wrong?

It sounds like you have something with the valve train that has failed. You need to remove the valve cover and examine for anything broken
