My 97 Cutlass Supreme has recently begun having serious issues.

For the past month or so there has been a steady coolant leak. We have not had the money to bring it to the shop so we have kept it topped up. The coolant only leaks when the car is running.

Yesterday, the car stopped running, and because our gas gauge does not work well I thought we were out of gas. After refilling it the car would not stay running. It would turn over fairly easily at times but it would not idle comfortably - it would accelerate and decelerate on its own for 30 seconds or so until it stopped running on its own. It was at this time other the oil lamp light, and battery light came on.

We are trying to anticipate how much we will save for repairs. Does anyone have any idea what the problem(s) could be?

Thanks in advance.

When using the turn signal, dash light signal flashes at normal brightness briefly, then continuously flickers at levels barely noticeable. I was directed to replace the flasher part "EL12" by the local advanced auto parts clerk. Now, I need help finding this fella. I suspect this to be in the steeringcolumn or behind the ash tray. Any direction would be most helpful and appreciated. As I don't want to spend all evening turning wrenches playing hide and seek with this component.
