Right after I made a left hand turn, the engine stalled. I coasted for a second and stopped. Fuel was low but not empty. I tried to start the engine, but it would not start as if out of gas. The van sat for about than forty minutes while I got fuel. Put a gallon in, the engine started, but stalled in about ten seconds. I tried the engine again and it would not start. I let it sit for about fifteen minutes. The engine started but stalled in 7 seconds. ? I am stumped. Lol

I have checked the coolant level, I have cleaned electrical fuel connections. I will be using an OBDII next. Any suggestions before I do this. What might be a quick and inexpensive fix for this problem. I am at my wits end because the tester may not read it.

Thank you for any help and have a great day.
