'95 Nissan Maxima - Turns off when turning right and going up a hill



Hello, everyone. I have a '95 Nissan Maxima with 115,000 miles on it.

My car has been making grinding noises for a while now when turning left or right. Recently, within the previous week, it would lose power when I turned right and or was going up a hill and stop. I also had noticed the RPMs have been lower than they should be, and when I press on the pedal, it seems like the power supply to the engine is uneven.

I took the car to a local shop, and they couldn’t figure it out, so now they told me to take it to the dealer, which I heard can be quite expensive. I am a poor recent college grad. Help!

What should I do? Any ideas on what could be causing this weird problem?
