and why they keep going bad

Its hanging on the right side but my left side just needs to be welded on.

The low coolant light comes on after a while it goes off but comes on back again. The heater blows cool air longer than usual it does get hot after a while.

This has just started happening recently and it is getting dangerous for my wife and four kids. Please help me

I bought this car new in 2002. It has 154,000 miles on it. I have always ran 10-30 synthetic valoline oil in it since day one and have changed oil and filter every 3000 to 5000 miles and still have sluge in the motor. When i take the oil cap off it has yellow gunk stuff up around cap. What could possible be going on with this motor.

Has far as the coolant problems, the motor does not over heat but, wants to use coolant every 2 or 3 weeks of normal driving. It wants to spray coolant all over the belt and battery on the right side of motor and notice some steam around top radiator and i have black soft flakes in the coolant. Also on the left side motor i ntoice water on top transmission. I have replaced water pump and heater valve tubes and flushed out coolant and replaced with new coolant. Sorry for length message. Thanks!

Motor is good. Acts like it is getting stuck in the track or something.

I am planning to replace the cat, but I can hear a sound like an exhaust tip from the air filter housing. Can a restricted cat cause this?

Last year when I was parked on an incline, with about 1/4 tank of gas, my guage went to empty. As I drove away, my check engine light went on. It went off a couple days later but returned a couple days after that. Since then, my gas guage has not worked. Even when I have the tank full, any time I am stopped and idling, the guage goes to empty. More importantly, I had the check engine diagnosed. They stated it was a vapor canister valve. I am not sure of the code, but I thought it was a Po440. Do I just need to change the vapor canister, or with the gas guage doing this odd behavior, could it be something else to?

ABS harnass needs repaired...how much?

Check engine came on (02 Grand prix 3.8L), Cleared code P0442 (Small EVAP Leak), Check engine came back on and noticed gas cap gasket was cracked, Replaced w/new and cleared code again.. Ran very good for roughly 70 miles after topping off the tank but did notice the needle took awhile to drop from the (F) mark, I then had lose of power with no additional codes returning and now it is very difficult to go over 30MPH without having serious hesitation. Changed purge valve, fuel filter and check vacuum lines for the obvious....All looked good from what was visible... Hooked up the OBDII with laptop and noticed the 2nd bank O2 Sensor was showing voltage but showed N/A for the fuel trim as O2 bank 1 show voltage as well as a percentage reading for fuel trim... Any Thoughts?
