Engine studders or completely stalls when turning.

(1990 Buick LeSabre)
When I go around a corner it sometimes studders or completely stalls, I can shut it off and restart it then it'll drive fine for a while before it happens again. When it happens the 'service engine' light, battery light, and temp light all come on or flash. I also hear all of the electric door locks clicking when it happens. Any suggestions that might cause this?
How long have you had this problem? Few months been happening more often

Hello,
You likely have a bad engine mount.

When the engine is able to lean to one side during a turn, it can stretch, pinch, disconnect, or sever many different necessary connections.

These may be electrical lines, intake air, fuel lines, etc..

If you notice vibration when the car is stopped in driver or reverse, or if you get clunking when you press the gas from a stop, this is likely what is going on.
