You probably already know that the center console has a switch to allow air to flow into it, so if it's a warm day and the ac is on, it keeps it pretty cool in there.

revs up and down could be MAF or torque converter in tranny. Clunk is you guibo joint (like a U-joint with a rubber bushing). Oil leak can be found by looking at where it's Leaking (sorry).
