Bought an automatic VR a few days ago to fix up for my misses .. and have discovered that the motor dies when you go around certain corners.

Any ideas what would cause it ??

Is it just the engine itself stalling,or does the car loose all power and cut out ?Ive seen electrical problems cause a similar thing to happen,but this other car was loosing all power around corners and just cutting out and stalling.It was a loose wire in the end that was causing it.It was the main power wire that goes from the battery to the bottom of the main 60A fusible link which is located down near the fuse box under the bonnet..Every time the battery moved sideways a little bit around a corner,this main wire moved and it caused a bad connection.The problem wasnt found until months later when the wire connector to the main fusible link finally snapped off completely.
