Why my car turns off when I accelerate in it?

(1990 Buick Regal)
in Meridian, MS on April 09, 2011
It happens every time I drive the car. By the way, it is a 1989 Buick Regal not a 1990. When I do accelerate, the steering wheel will not budge and it is hard to press the brakes. I have no idea what the problem is, can you please help me?

Sounds like you may have an engine vacuum problem. Like a vacuum leak somewhere. This is where I would have someone focus their attention on.
