Both can be used to for making future predictions without having a real difference in meaning. " Will" is used to express future actions decided at the moment of speaking while "going to" describes future plans decided before the moment of speaking. E.g. I will have pizza now. I'm going to visit my grandparents next Saturday. "Will" is used to indicate a prediction based on opinions or experiences while "going to" is used to express a prediction based on present evidence.
I will buy a car - spontaneous decision, I've just seen a car, I liked it, and said that I would buy it, no matter if I have such an opportunity. I am going to buy a car - I am planning to buy a car (thinking ot what kind of cars I would like to get, saving money, if need so and so on so on so on)
Hello We can use “will” for instant decisions and even for offer, threat and promise. For example You look tired, I will help you with the dishes. We can use “going to” for prior decisions, and for making predictions, whenever there are signs that something is likely to happen. For example It’s 8:30, we are going to miss the train.
