cracked radiator caused some problems

I was out on the trail not too long ago and overheated climbin some hills. Stooped to let her cool off a few times but the last hole I hit and got out the radiator head cracked. Stuck a tire plug in there and filled up with water. Hit the parts store and epoxied it for now seeing as I cant afford a new one just yet. The the other day driving home the epoxy finally gave out close to home. Theres steam everywhere, I was getrin funny looks but I had to get home. Turnin down the road I heard a loud clinking which my guess is the water pump not pumping anything. I let her cool for the night fix it up the next day and add all the coolant. Now heres my problem. It starts and runs but it acts as if im constantly on the gas. And when im in 2nd it acts like im playin a kick drum with the.pedal. Im ordering new parts this weekend. I idea why it is acting like this

Drove it today and everytime I shift and give it gas it jumps or hesitates. The.clutch is super sensitive now.

check for a broken motor mount, that could cause the jumping. If you got it that hot there's no telling what else is wrong.
