Hey! I am the proud owner of a 1997 nissan maxima with almost 200,000 miles on it! It has been having the problem of periodically stalling going around turns, or when im stopped at a light. Today its gotten even worse, stalling frequently. I took it out around the culdesac and it seemingly shut off, I turned it back on, went to turn around and it stalled again! It proceeded to stall 3 more times just in making the 1 turn. None of the gauges were running high, but the brake light and oil light flashed. I checked the engine and it was extremely low on coolant, so I filled that, checked the oil, which came out a lighter brown with a little bit of black "soot" residue, and the battery appears to have some kind of corrosion buildup around one of the terminals. How can I start this bad boy working again?
