I have a 92 grand am, recently I blew a head gasket and put some liquid stuff in and fixed it for now, recently I was driving and the car started running very rough and now when I go to push the gas it putters and lost a lot of power to go, sometimes when im like on a slant and I start to go it makes a little clunking sound but then goes, and when im on the freeway at a constant speed you can feel the car jerking and sputtering just a little like constant pulling forward, I replaced the coils pack, but not the coil housing can that be it, I dont want to keep buying parts that arent the ones lol ive don that before plzzz help me I hate this car

Its time to fix the car right. Antifreeze is getting into the cylinders and fouling the sparkplugs. If you let it go you will ruin the engine. If it over heats it will warp the head.

The easyest thing for you to see if it is a head gasket is pay a shop to test it so you will know for shure. It should be under a $100 trust me its worth it. If it is a head gasket that engine is a lot of work for a first timer. Get a repair manual and go from there. On that engine there is no easy 1-2-3 steps.1 thing before I go you said you smell gas. Check the fuel pressure regulator sometimes they go bad and pump gas through the vacume line into the engine. Pull the vacume line off and see if gas is comming out of it if yes replace it. Located at front passenger side near the top its round at the end of the fuel rail. Good luck
