it could be the rubber tubing between the gas tank and the hole that you fill the tank from. sometimes that rubber tubing dries out and cracks, and then you have a gas leak. if thats the problem, its a really simple fix.

A better description would be usefull of all the problems. First and fore most. What exactly do you mean by 'the front wheel drive going out' It's not a 4wd vehicle so if the front wheel drive goes out it isn't moving. Secondly, where is the fuel leak coming from roughly. It's a fuel injected car so turning the key to run, without starting, should pressurize the fuel line. If it's a leak allong the fuel line or in the engine bay it'll usually spray under these conditions. If it's leaking at the back it could be as mentioned above or a damaged fuel tank, you'll have to have your friend look and give us a better idea. If the antifreeze is leaking, where is it leaking from? The radiator, the radiator cap, the overflow, a hose, or from the engine? Details are very useful.
