Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Driving to work. Usually 2nd or 3rd stop, vehicle will stall when stopped or trying to take off on green light. Starts back up and don't have an issue rest of day. Today it stalled as normal except several seconds into the turn, it stalled and steering locked up. I was lucky no heavy traffic.

I am assuming it is usually colder in the mornings. What is the weather like when it stalls/when it runs ok?

2003-05 Cavalier were know for having faulty fuel pumps. If your check engine light is not on, then perhaps your fuel pump is going bad, but has not completely stop working. If your check engine light is on, find out what the trouble codes are and go from there.
