Engine cuts out on '03 Bonneville SSEI

Engine cuts out for no reason. Possible Grounding Wire problem from Engine to Chassis? Made a left turn and engine chugged and died. Headed for home and engine dies several times, sometimes restarting immediately, sometimes not.

No reason!!! If there was no reason-- it would work just fine

How about a worn out fuel pump that quites when it feels
like it?

SOURCE: engine missing, particularly in idle, or dies when turning

The intake gaskets leaking would cause the engine to have a misfire. Get a can of Brake Clean and spray in around the intake manifold on the top of the engine while the engine is running. The engine idle will go up or down if there is a leak. Also try swapping the spark plug with another spark plug to see if the misfire moves to another cylinder. If it moves then you have a bad spark plug. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: dies while driving

First off, add a new ground wire from the engine to the body just for the hell of it. Now clean all the battery cable connetors aat all point and add WD40 afterwards. Also check connectors from dash panel to engine circuits. This is real suspect. WD 40 them also

SOURCE: engine starts and then immediately dies.

Sounds like fuel pump is going bad.Change fuel filter to make sure its not that.Then put a fuel pressure gauge on the schraider valve located on the fuel rail (its like the valve on your tire) to check if the pump is up to specs.(Make sure you have rags around to soke up any fuel spillage) With the gauge on have some one start the vehicle as normal and watch the gauge,if it drops below specs replace the pump .TIP:You can borrow a fuel pressure gauge from AutoZone and ask them the fuel pump p.s.i. spec on your vehicle.Free,free,free diagnosis!!!

SOURCE: my subaru impreza 2.0 turbo AWD engine has cut out

Could be an air flow fault, check all your air pipes for holes or splits and also check the air flow meter and sensor. just clean them up before going any further.

Also check the earth lead from the battery to the slam panel, and to the gearbox make sure all the earths have a good contact to the car body.

Try the Salvage yard, you can get then around $45.00 each if you pull the parts your self. Call around though, different Salvage Yards have different price and will always try to beat the price of another Salvage yard. They pull parts for you too if you don't fell like getting your hands dirty twice. Good luck.

Yup, grounding problem.
There is a grounding strap from the engine to the chassis. It is either loose, corroded, damaged, missing, or otherwise not making good contact with the engine or chassis. If you can't locate it, then ground has been using the "pigtail" wire coming off the negative battery side.
If you had the battery or cables services recently, then the wrong negative cable was installed. Installing a ground strap (AutoZone $8) from engine to chassis is better anyway.
