I just changed the oil and plugs on my 98 maxima then I test drove it and it started to jerk and stalled then I seen some power steering fluid leaking from the hose near the crankshaft sensor would that make it do that?

Check for a intake leak around the intake , spray brake cleaner around the intake if it has a leak it will idle up or burn white smoke, also could be mass air flow sensor thet are known for going bad on nissans

It don't stall all the time it only does it once in a while but before I changed the plugs it would jerk real hard like the engine was going to fall the I would take my foot off the gas and it would stall then start back up then it will be fine

I almost bet the mass airflow sensor is bad.u should try one from napa.dont get one from autozone they wont work.
