First thought is that the engine is shifting on worn mounts and wires and/or hoses are being stretched.

i agree with 7jimmy7. Check idle air control. Also clean butterfly on throttle and replace fuel filter.

You could have a number of problems with your cutting off and idling rough and doing so when turning tells me that you need to check the power steering pump. Does the engine make a squealing noise when turning, especially to the left? Do you hear a whinning noise coming from under the hood? It could be a number of other things as well. Even as simple as a clogged up dirty air filter, wornout or dry rotted spark plug wires, needing a tuneup, new plugs? PCV valve clogged. bad O2 sensor. Almost anything. You will need to take it to Autozone, Advance auto or some autoparts store that checks your car out for free. They will hook your car up to a scanner and it will read the computer codes and tell you what's up. Good Luck, Kenny/MrBlueOval
