hey guys, i just went out for a quick drive, and a couple of times the car died when cornering (not hard cornering) any idea what could cause this? my first thought was not enough fuel, but ive got about 1/3 of a tank of fuel, and have checked for vacuum leaks but cant hear/feel any

I can't remember exactly, but it's a pressure switch or something on the power steering rack near the intermediate shaft they fail all the time and are very easy to fix!
