    no power when turning or engine bogs bad!

    When i take a full left or right turn and give it a about part throttle, the car just chugs along very slowly. I can then punch it and it does absolutely nothing! like the cars sta a stand still. It will eventually grab and go, but its never done this before and lately its been pretty common. any ideas?

    You've got what kind of car again?That sounds like a weird one to me-I had an old truck that had a similar deal-when you went around a right hand turn it would die-finally figured out that it was a hole in the radiator tank,when you went around a turn-it would splash antifreeze out the hole and spray down the coil.It would dry off enough to restart in a short while due to the engine heat-I couldn't crank it and watch the engine at the same time so it took a while to figure out.Not saying this is what your problem is- just an interesting story that illustrates how you have to think outside the box on some of this stuff.Let us know if you figure anything else out.

    i had a truck that did the same thing. would almost die when id let of the throttle to turn or at a stop sign or a light and it was the fuel filter. if its been a long time or you havent replaced it yet probably a good idea anyway
