    Does it completely die or just sputter?

    auto.

    itll sputter a bit sometimes. but if i make a U turn itll die completely and start right back up with no problem. i have a feelings its got somethin to do with the power steering because i noticed around the reservoir its wet. like its backing up through there.

    In the mean time, check you fluid level if you haven't already. See if you can stall/sputter by turning left in the drive way.

    Do you have an ex-girlfriend that hated your truck that you always used to turn left to get to her place to pick her up...?

    Just sayin...:)

    Is your battery loose? Check the connections also.

    Does it happen when turning, and stopped? It could be the idle up circut. When a load is applied to the engine via the steering pump, the idle up circut compensates by raising the engine speed.

    This is a long shot but maybe you have a loose wire and its ether grounding out or losing connection when you turn left. I had an ignition wire on my 4wheeler that went down from the handle bars and every time Id turn right it would kill the 4-wheeler cause it pulled the wire apart.

    I dont know what wire it would be that is doing this but just a thought!
