Any car with that many miles will have problems like that.

I had a 1988 Ford Tempo, and it was also a piece of junk. Pretty much half of the engine had to be replaced over the course of 10 years or so. Then, it had a problem where it would stall when I went to accelerate. Nobody could figure out what the hell was wrong with it, and I couldn't afford a better car at the time, so I just drove around in an unreliable car. It stalled in an intersection at 1AM once, and a cop stopped me because he thought I was drunk. The thing finally met its demise when a Durango pulled out in front of me, and I plowed into the side of it at 40 MPH. I was okay, got lots of money, and was glad to see it go. These cars were pieces of garbage.
