Default Clattering

I just got my 93 SSEi Bonne out of the shop today for the 2nd time. Now, i was cruising with another Bonne, i believe it was a 2002 se and i heard a clattering starting to build up. Not only that, the car randomly shuts off on straight aways and WILL shut off if i turn the wheel all the way tot he right or left if i dont gas it .

This car has potential, I live in Jersey, so there'* lots of rice burners and little german cars(GTI'*) around. I wanna ge the Bonne roaring down the street dropping mouths but this car just has one problem after another
