Just recently, I had the brake lines flushed and new brake pads and rotors put on the car, as well as new spark plugs. I have not checked the thermostat and I do not know if that has ever been replaced on my car. The transmission fluid in it is really old, too, so I'm wondering if that could be a problem as well.
I know I have a head gasket leak that I haven't had the money to repair yet, but I'm not sure if it's internal or external. (I can see the leak running down the front of the engine block, so I guess it's external and that's why my oil isn't milky.) However, I have been losing antifreeze coolant somewhere in the engine. I am sure that leak is an internal one because the only liquid I've seen on the engine block is oil.
I've been cleaning it off as much as I can, which seemed to help, but now nothing I do is making the car stop shutting off everytime I drive her for a while.
It always shuts off when I am braking and turning sharply. It shakes and then shuts off.
