Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass
Iam going toward head gasket number 3,especially with the white smoke.
Could be intake gasket
One thing for sure-your Converter is shot,with all that coolant going thru it.
The hesitation is combustion mixture,diluted with coolant,as well as fouled spark plugs.
You got a lot of work ahead of you.
The front grinding noise could be different issues, Brakes,Suspension,Steering,Etc
New O2 Sensors
New Spark Plugs
Hope your doing all the work, I wouldn't pay for the labor on that job.

Look at the oil on the "dipstick". if it looks milky or separated when oil and water mixes, then you have coolant getting in the oil. a simple overflow or radiator cap can cause a car to overheat if it can't hold the pressure of the coolant. A cap is pressure rated and overtime it will break down causing the car to lose coolant which most of the time will be unseen. It loses coolant very little and over a day or so, you will be low on coolant. Then on the other hand, since the head gasket has been replaced 2 times, I'm wondering if the head was checked for warping. or if it needed resurfaced or a new head. If the head needed worked and it was never redone then the head gasket is useless.
