When this happens does this vehicle idle low?What are the RPM'S at? I need more info, not sure if this is a power steering pump problem or an idle quality problem. Post back with more details and will advise.

Brian This only happens when I turn sharply left or right. The first time I was turning into a parking stall and as I cranked the wheel to line up the engine died. Shifted to neutral and it started right up. I have tested it several times just driving around it has not gone away. There is no warning such as low rpms it just shuts off. I can replicate this problem in park by cranking the wheel hard and reving the engine. After reving, as the rpms drop off it will shut down. This only happens with the wheels hard right or left.

I want you to see if there are any codes. If you can have it scanned, maybe at autozone they will scan it for free, see if any dtcs and post back.I'LL help as best I can, but before I do I'm trying to figure out if its a low idle problem or a vacuum problem. There are a couple of bulletins on this problem. Post back with what you find and will advise.

No codes. After doing some more research I found someone who had the same problem and had a cure. I was advised to clean the MAF sensor, throttle body valve and replace the fuel filter. So far it has worked the problems are gone. I do not understand why these procedures worked but I am very happy that the did.
