A weak or bad fuel pump. When youu turn a corner you cause the fuel in the fuel tank to move abruptly from one side of the tank to the other. The rushing movement of the fuel causes the pump inside the tank to work harder causing a week pump to shut down.


Another possibility is the fuel pressure regulator.

How does the egine make the car move?

The engine has a crankshaft that is connected to all the pistons in the engine. When the engine is running the pistons are moving up and down and are turning this crankshaft. The crankshaft in turn is spinning a shaft connected to the transmission. The transmission is turning a driveshaft that is connected to the differential which in turn is turning an axle connected to the wheels.
