Thanks to anyone offering their input on this discussion
I have a '94 Ninety-Eight that is having a number of issues, that I'm guessing are related.

1) Losing brake fluid with no visible leaks
2) Engine dying when brakes are pressed for too long, or going through curves
3) Engine shuttering like it's going to stall out when certain speeds aren't maintained
4) Traction light is on (assuming this has to do with the brake fluid loss)

The MAF Sensor was replaced less than a year ago.
The Brake lines have all been replaced in the last year.
Water pump was replaced in July 2021.

Any thoughts or insight that can be offered would be greatly appreciated. This car has a great deal of sentimental value to me.

To start I would check for vacuum leaks. Check around the carbon canister on the drivers side front of the engine bay and all of the black tubes and fittings that come off of it. There is one fitting around there; I think it is a T shaped rubber fitting that can dry out and cause similar problems when it leaks air.
