Please do not curse in our forums, did you check your plug wires, if one is not connected it will lose power and skip, about your fan, did you check the fan nut?

Thank you for saying that. I couldn't wait till I got home and to my lap top to say something about that. There is a lot of other words one can use instead of the curse words !

do you have points or EI, sounds like an ignition problem and your fan probably sucked something up stick your hand back there and feel around, make sure the engine is off first before you do that, it will take your fingers off . Shocked

check your valve adjustment and also see if the belt is still tight.the belt could be old and be expanding when you rev the engine,making the fan shroud rattle.

With those symptoms sounds like the nut has come loose from the fan. Charging issues becasue of the fan loss might cause the missing.

Only other I can think of with noise and running crappy is you blew a plug out.
