Bmr87 is an unknown quantity at this point
After going around left hand turns the car dies. It almost seems as if it runs out of fuel. But I know it doesn't because there is a full tank of gas in the car. It has happened 5 times. After it dies and sits for a couple of minutes it will fire right back up and continue to drive just fine. But when it doesn't sit and I try to fire it back up it wont start. It turns over but wont fire. Everything comes on like the lights etc....but wont fire. Does anyone know what's wrong or has this happened to someone else?

I have heard of something similar happening. The problem there was in the ignition switch which was shorting out on left-hand turns, caused by the steering column. Might be worth checking that out.
