Or when making a 3 point turn. All the dash lights come on then the engine quits. This does not happen all the time nor does there seem to be a pattern or similar condition each time. Some times it starts back up and some times he has to wait a few minutes to start it. Check engine light is not on. Thanks for your help.

    Sounds like the power steering pressure switch is not doing its job, this raises the idle so the car won't die when you are parking, because the power steering system puts a heck of a load on the motor.

    That sounds like a fuel issue, but it would need to be checked.
