Hello,

It sounds like you have more than one problem. We will handle the misfire issue on this post please make a new question for the ABS problem. The misfire issue sounds like the MAF or fuel pump need to be replaced. Here are two guides to help us see whats going on:

It wont affect the way the engine runs but it will cause the car to act funny. Can you please shoot a quick video with your phone so we can see what's going on? That would be great. You can upload it here with your response.

Nice work on the videos. it seems like the engine is running okay. I would make sure you have fresh spark plugs and then clear the codes and replace the MAF sensor.

The P0521 code is set when the ECM detects the voltage value is either higher or lower than the specified acceptable range of oil pressure. This code can also be set when the engine detects constant fluctuation of the oil pressure value. How many miles on the engine? It sounds like you may have a clogged oil pump pick up screen. I don't see a oil pressure gauge in the cluster correct? Let remove the oil pressure sender and insert a manual gauge to see what the pressure is it sounds like it could be low. Please let me know.
