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.
last time I drove my car was about 3 weeks ago when it snowed .didin't drive it any more until 1 week later,and it wasn't starting.Put it on booster pack and lights gotten brighter,but made a knocking sound,but took of the booster pack and no sounds at all or lights.I'am thinking that the battery is drained,battery is less than a year old;6 months.thinking that it just needs to be charged. Am I right in this? I have a 1994 Olds cutlass Supreme S 3.1Lt
Recently I hit what I believe to be a semi-truck tire on the highway at 65mph. It struck the drivers side of the vehicle and caused a few damages. One particular damage that I can't figure out is a hissing noise from what I found to be a vacuum leak. Above and further ahead from the driver side front tire there is a dangling vacuum hose that is connected to what is now a broken piece of plastic (See pictures: imgur(dot)com/a/7jFRR and imgur(dot)com/a/J53UB ) ( Put an actual dot "." when putting it in search browser, this website doesn't allow direct links). The drivability of the vehicle seems to be unaffected and the only thing that I can tell has changed is the sucking noise from the hole in whatever this part used to be before it was destroyed. So my questions are, what did this vacuum hose used to go to? What did this part do? Is it critical? Should it be fixed? How do I fix it?
Thank you!
My 94 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme I recently changed the fuel pump and filter and got a brand new battery put gas in it and it still won't start it turns over but still seems like it's not getting gas is there a relay switch or something else that I have to do
Shutting it off and turning it back on doesn't help. Put map sencer in and went about 20 miles and ran good. Shut it off to get gas, thinking that the problem was fixed. Started it back up and like to never got home. It's a 1989 Cutlass Supreme International. No option to choose for that
What seems to make the problem better or worse? Nothing
This happens when engine is wormed up.

How long have you had this problem? problem just started
can the noise isolator causes to lose fuel pressure
Changed all plugs and wires. Was driving down road loss power then died. No restart after that.
keys were replaced @ dealer and worked find,but having issues starting.New battery,starter alt is ok
It's just in the center and no where else to indicate it's getting leaked in from somewhere above.
I have changed the booster master cylinder. bled the brakes, but still get fluid out the back of the cap and running down the booster
Where are the oxygen sensors ?
My car starts up and runs fine for a min then starts to idle rough then idles fine again I put it in gear and go for a bit then it cuts out and dies it will start right back up but then dies again when I push the gas. I have replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, and spark plugs after the car was sitting for 4 years I am not sure what else it could be
Will not idle
