Engine cut off when I hit the brakes hard while turning
2001 Screw 4.6L
It has happened a couple times now. Twice last year within a half mile of each other. I was headed down the interstate, the truck died as I was stopping for a light right after getting off the interstate. 1/4 mile later it cut off again at the next light. Neither time did I feel the truck cut off, the steering wheel was suddenly hard to turn.
Today I was making a hard left turn. I was on the brakes hard, turning left when the wheel was suddenly hard to turn. Luckily it didn't lock. I was able to stop, put it in park, and restart it before getting run into. What can cause this? There was NO indication that it was going to cut off and at no time did I ever feel the truck cut off. From other forums I've read that it could be IAC, TPS, or bad ground. Prior to each time it cut off it was running like a top.
As you can imagine, this issue could lead to a bad situation if it continues to occur. Any ideas?
