Q: Q: What's wrong with my car

asked by on

So, I bought this 98 deville n after a few days I noticed anti freeze under the car, not a lot. Checked the level, it was fine it happened a few times, noticed it don't leak tell cooled down, not over heating at all. Noticed the anti freeze pours into overflow n not radiator, thought the hose might be leaking out access anti freeze since it had no where else to go cuzz car was still running good. Anyway, today I turned on my defrosters n my check engine light came on, got it checked, po302 came up, googled it checked all the different things out n think I may have a intake leak? What do you think? If so about how much does that run.
The car runs a lil sluggish,. Can I still drive it?

My car has 140000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
