confused engine stalling

Hi,

My EA falcon is doing my head in.:( sorry for the story but..,
one morning i started my car and took off up the street and stopped at the corner (about 30m) when i went to take off nothing???the car had stalled, when i tried to start it nothing.it turns out it had no spark, so i took it to the mechanic and they relpaced to coil and the relay. when i got it back it was sweet for a day, then the next day the same thing happened again. no starting but this time it had spark. took it to the mechanic again, this time they changed to spark plugs. so again i drove the car for the next day no troubles, but the next day in the morning the same thing happend again as i was going around a roundabout. after about 10 tries it turned over but was sputting and shuddering at the begining then would settle, so i jumped in again and drove for about 100m and the same thing again. it seems to happen when i'm turning the wheel slightly or slowing for a corner.mechanic had it again and cleaned some throttle thingy but when i got it back the same thing was happening. does any1 have any ideas cause its doing my head in. thanks

Re: engine stalling

no worries, thx for input. Its at the mechanics now if they have no idea i'll get em to check the fuel pickup cause iv (heard/read in other threads) that it could be the prob, that or maybe immobiliser, i dun know.

Re: engine stalling

hi all,

got the car back and it turns out some wires from the battery to the ignition were worn out and corroded, and when i turned the wheel to the right it stretched em or something, and they lose the connection. So they replaced the wires and its workin fine now. :) :) :)
thanks
