this car has 123k miles had for about a year and lately the car has been shutting off when I brake or when I make a Y turn, could possibly need turn up or something?

Open the hood, look at the large diameter hose that comes from the turbo into a L shapa black hard plastic valve that the other end goes to the intake aluminum pipe into the injection system. That valve is called Turbo bypass valve 4441895 ($75 from dealer or free from Junk yard). This valve apparently gives a false signal to the computer about gasoline leak and it is programmed to shut the fuel system OFF.
