Most likely this is due to a loose connection or other wiring problem which is stretches when the powertrain "swings" to the right when you make a left turn. This happens because the powertrain is mounted in flexible rubber mounts to allow some motion rather than a rigid mounting to the frame.
To determine if this is indeed what is happening, with the engine running and the car parked, open the hood and give the engine a hard push towards the passenger side of the engine compartment in order to simulate the motion of the drivetrain when you make a left turn.
If the engine cuts off, you may begin looking for wiring problems in the relevant locations

Vw jetta 2007 bkd engine whatare cylinder head bolt torque settings


I had a quick look online for these specs. according to several sites I visited, these are the correct specs.. Have fun.. 1.8L Turbo
  • Volkswagon's 1.8-liter Turbo engine has 10 head bolts arranged in pairs across the engine. The bolts should first be pre-tightened to a specification of 40 Newton Meters (Nm), starting with the middle two bolts and proceeding in sequence out towards either the left or right end of the engine. The bolts should then be tightened again in the same sequential order by making a one-quarter turn of the wrench, and then tightened once again with another one-quarter turn.
  • 2.8L V6
  • There are 20 head bolts arranged in three lines across Volkswagon's 2.8-liter V6 engine. The bolts should first be pre-tightened in sequence to a specification of 50 Newton Meters (N-m), starting with the first bolt that is situated in the center of the engine block between cylinders 3 and 4. Proceed tightening the bolts in sequence out towards either the left or right end of the engine. The bolts should then be tightened again in the same sequential order by making a one-quarter turn of the wrench, and then tightened once again with another one-quarter turn.
  • 2.0L L4
  • Volkswagon's 2.0-liter L4 engine has 10 bolts that are arranged in pairs across the engine. The bolts should first be pre-tightened in sequence to a specification of 40 Newton Meters (N-m), starting with the middle two bolts and proceeding in sequence out towards either left or right end of the engine. The bolts should then be tightened again in the same sequential order by making a one-quarter turn using a box wrench, and then tightened again with another one-quarter turn.

    2002 Impala engine died while driving, then started as usual


    If you were to turn the ignition off when you are driving it would do the same thing. My guess is that a critical ignition wire is either shorting or coming loose when inertia exists through your left turn.

    In park turn the wheel all the way to the left. Did the car die? Try wiggling the red wires connecting through the starter, battery, and such with the engine running. Also try wiggling the wires through the steering column to the ignition.

    1998 Cherokee Sport 2.5 mpi engine cuts out


    A vehicle turning should have no effect on the fuel system .remember it is not an aircraft.i suspect it to be a differential problem.have it checked since it will still be in guarantee/warranty.
