this usually indicates an emission problem that could cause motor or catalytic need to go to the shop and have code pulled from the computer to start diagnosing,the cat could be plugged up as you say when you try to accelerate the car won`t move normally,the gas smell indicates the motor is not burning fuel as designed and the white smoke indicates a possible coolant leak into the combustion chamber and being burnt.this car needs to be checked out at a shop before major damage occurs if it hasn`t already happened.

My 97 sunfire was running fine until I hit a bump now its leaking coolant and I know for a fact its not the radiator. What's the issue?

You are the only person that can tell us where the coolant is coming from. Get a flash light and find the leak, then you will know.

I don't know what the symbol means on my 1999 Pontiac Sunfire

does it look like a radiator? Low coolant sensor, may be in the overflow tank. Check your coolant levels when cold.

97 Pontiac grand am overheats as soon as it gets to running temp

If electric fans are coming on, and you have filled the system with the heater turned on high to purge it of air, even though you flushed it, I'd have the radiator flow tested (even when flushing, coolant tends to go around internal blockages, limiting its ability to work correctly) otherwise you need to begin testing from square one like you had never seen it before (don;'t assume anything you did is working) Pressure testing of coolant system, hydrocarbon test at fill opening and engine compression tests are important as well as what I mentioned above.

Trying to read error codes 98 pont/sunfire 2.2l

You can't read the codes this way on 95 and newer cars and light trucks (OBD 2 system), you will have to either go to a Kragen auto where they will do it for free or buy a cheap code reader for about $30-40.

Try removing the plastic cover that sits between the radiator and the nose section of the car to check your radiator it may have a crack in it on the top. Atleast thats the problem I had with my 97 sunfire
