I have a 1994 Toyota Landcruiser and the engine dies when making left hand turns into driveways,parking lots, slower sharper left hand turns. No problem with Right hand turns and I can sit idling and watch the idle drop way off when turning the wheel left versus the right. Any ideas wouold be greatly appreciated.

My wife says "make right turns!!" ....but seriously..... I don't know if this will help or not, but I had a freind with an early '80's Maxima that was doing the same thing once. Stay with me here..... We started talking about it and looking under the hood and he found a loose connection on one of the wires conncting straight to the battery. When he wiggled that wire the engine would die sitting still.

I know it's far-fetched (being a Maxima and all) but worth a look.
