My car keeps dying each time I turn the wheel to the right. Never dies when I turn left or anything. Only when I turn right.

does it happen when the car is stationary, or only when moving? is the fuel tank full? low fuel and bad fuel tank baffles can cause problems with fuel pickup sometimes. It could be loose battery cables or an internal short in the battery. it could be a rubbed wire somewhere that only manifests itself on the inertia or a right turn. It could also be a vacuum leak. also, a bad motor mount causing the engine to torque over and cut something off. also, a bad ignition switch or wiring in the column. lot of stuff I know, but these are things that have caused this. let me know if it is any of them>

It only happens randomly when I turn right while in motion. It cut off randomly while I was stationary ready to take a turn the first time. After that, it only happens at different times when I am turning right. Some people may think that it also could be a broken ignition wire in the steering column.

And a half tank of gas right now as well.
