car is stalling when making sharp u-turns?

It doesn't happen all the time but sometimes when i make a sharp u-turn my car would stall... its an automatic tranny btw. it happened to me yesterday making a u turn on queens street E. and happened before making a u turn in the parking lot at work... i noticed it only when i make a u turn and it goes up on an incline on the exit. can anyone help?

If you smell gas from the rear...it will most likely be your fuel pump's rubber gasket that is messed up...not an expensive fix...

Check the fuse in the trunk. It is connected from the battery to the main relay. That little $0.50 part drove me nuts for months after I did my engine swap.

take off the bottom part of your backseat, open the panel on the passenger side, see if there is any gas in there, if there is its the gasket as mentioned above, i did mine already
