My car has a manual transmission.

A: The engine could be noisy for many reasons,...

The engine could be noisy for many reasons, but the most common noise is when the engine mounts are worn out or broken. This causes the engine to vibrate the cradle in the engine compartment, making a noise.

As far as the vehicle not feeling comfortable and being stiff, the control arm bushings may be hard and need replaced. When going over bumps, the control arm will move up and down, causing the bushings to move and squeak. I recommend replacing the bushings to the control arms that are making the noise when going over bumps.

If you need further assistance, then seek out a professional, such as one from YourMechanic, who can diagnose any unusual engine noise when going over bumps.

Q: Heater and radio stay on but can be shut off after Key is out of the ignition

My first impulse is to say that you have a bad ignition switch or maybe a power relay sticking, but that remote starter is really a wild card. Often accessory installations like remote starters can cause unexpected problems in the...
