Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2005 Saturn Ion stalls when I make left hand turns!  The engine light comes on and the car goes into limp mode!  I stop the car and wait a minute or two and it starts right back up and after driving it for a while the engine light goes out!  I took it to a shop and they replaced the throttle body and ignition coil on two different occasions and my car still does the same thing!  Perplexed and dont want to keep going back getting charged $300 a pop and not getting the problem fixed!  Please help!

I would suggest looking around your front end parts because the only thing that would cause that is a loose wiring harness or something getting caught in the rack and pinion steering assembly. Then the left turn pulls it just enough to cause the engine to die.
