hey scotty i have an 02 mazda mpv, its an automatic, two things:

when i speed up in first gear it clunks and judder thru gears 1-4 then the max gear 5th it runs smoothly but the wheels tilt a little bit left and right, what's causing this?

the second is that sometimes it starts, i dont know if it is the battery, because i took ericthecarguy's advice by turning on the headlights but theyre bright. i dont know if it is the alternator or the starter itself.

Have the brakes inspected for wear or other issues. Most all vehicles shut off the fog lamps when the high beams are turned on, probably because the fogs don't add any meaningful light over what the high beams are already projecting on the road.

tranny is flat wearing out, get rid of it FAST or spend thousands rebuilding the tranny. As for starting, go to auto zone they load test batteries and alternators free so you'd know. But really, get rid of it fast or drive it till it stops shifting at all, and then get rid of it
