98 LeSabre cuts out

My wife’s 98 LeSabre will occasionally cut out or stall. It usually happens at low speeds and she thinks it may be more frequently on a right hand turn. The engine can always be restarted immediately. There is no other symptom, no check engine light on when running. The car runs well and has ~125000 miles. Sounds like an intermittent connection or short but where?



Any thoughts, has anyone else experienced this?



Thanks

There could be a faulty power connection to the ignition system or the fuel delivery system. Replacing the fuel filter may help.

my guess would be the battery ground to the fender.
