Hard right cut off

I have a 2001 Toyota Solara. Whenever I make a hard right turn the car turns off. When I stop and put it in park I can always crank right back up. I can turn left with no problems. Can anyone tell me what the problem is.?

It sounds like you have a loose electrical connection that is “broken” by the action of making a hard right turn. A good mechanic should be able to trace it and fix it.

My guess is the engine mounts are bad, and he engine rocks to one side and does something to the wires or hoses that causes the stall.

Solution: don’t make hard right turns…
