2003 Volvo - motor stalls when making right turns & applying brake
My 2003 volvo has recently started stalling when I'm making a right turn and the brake is being applied. This is also starting to happen [randomly] when I apply my brakes at all. Any suggestions or thoughts ?

Check engine idle speed, check fuel filter, check fuel system for water ect, add dfry gas to take out water, check distributor caps and wires, check emision system , check spark plugs, check for manifold lead, check fuel injectors, and fuel control system.
My response to another post, see if it is applicable:
Had the same problem where the idle would go to about 500rpm and
'cough', i.e. move up and down and not be stable. Got so bad that when
I was in traffic recently the car stalled every time I came to a stop.
Turns out I have a bad oxygen sensor as well as MAP sensor. Expensive
parts (about $200 each) though not hard to replace. May want to check
those first. MAP sensor I believe controls something with gas combining
with oxygen in the engine (too much gas, not enough oxygen to combust).
I would press the gas peddle and not get much response. I was flooding
the engine because that sensor was bad and that's why it was stalling.
All stuff I learned after my very uncomfortable experience recently. I
have a 2003 S60.
