zero, to hero?

My name is Matt, i own a 1994 Pontiac gt, i bought it off my parents friend he said it ran great and it would last me awhile. well almost a year later my car is almost done. it barley runs, every time i turn my steering wheel to the right it makes a very loud grinding sound. My motor mount broke on my car also and my local ace store didn't have the right size screw to replace it so i have a bigger one in there holding it up, but it's way to big and it sticks out. I have random oil leaks all the time, I would be driving and all of a sudden there will be a puddle of oil just streaming out from the bottom of my car. My heater and air conditioning don't work some how the motor managed to blow, and every time i put on my lights at night my left blinker constantly stays on and i have no clue how to get it off. Every time i go to switch a gear in my car my whole engine moves, and if i take it on a short trip somewhere my car will start to smoke from underneath the hood. its hard to maintain my car especially when im about to attend college, i wont have the time i need to get my car back in to good condition.

My thoughts exactly. By 94 Pontiac GT I'm assuming you mean a Grand Prix or Grand Am.... These are disposable mid-90s fwd gm junk. If it's the Grand Prix GT with the 3.8L, I'm a little surprised as I've only had the experience that these are bulletproof, hardworking (and torquey) little mills that just happened to get crammed into junk cars.
