I'm very, very familiar with Miranda v Arizona. The law is this: If I suspect you of a crime and begin to question you without arresting you, you are not in custody I am not required to mirandize you. If I arrest you and do not ask you any questions, then I am not required to mirandize you. Thats why we ask the questions before you are arrested. Questions such as age, name, date of birth, address, etc., are not covered by miranda. As a detective I'm required to know this.

If you think you are possibly in serious trouble, that is exactly why you never talk to cops except to give name, et cetera as pointed out above.
Never say anything beyond that bare minimum info like age, DOB et cetera until you have a lawyer with you.
If they ask you anything beyond that simple minimum, inform them that you are taking the 5th amendment and exercising your rights under it, and request the presence of a lawyer.
When you open your mouth you risk giving them ammo to charge you with a crime, and ammo to convict you.
