I feel the engine stalling is the cause of the steering and brake issues. As far as fixing it, if it is running good again, that makes it hard because it won't show any codes or problems. With this kind of situation, (and I hate to say this) you have to wait until it won't restart. At that point, you will be able to find the problem.
As far as "is it worth fixing?" If the car has been reliable, is in good condition. My suggestion is yes, it is worth fixing unless you end up with a huge bill. The way I try to explain it is like this. If you had to put 1000.00 dollars into it, at least you know what you have. If you spent 1000.00 on a used vehicle, you have no idea what you are getting or what it needs, and frankly, how good of a car can you get for that price.
Keep that in mind when you need to put money into your present vehicle. Yes, there will come a point where too much is being put into it. At that point, it may be time for a new one.
