Default Car turned off!

OK! Today after i went out to eat i went around a corner a little, ok alot, faster than what I should of and all the sudden my damn car turned off! UGH! My power steering and my power brakes went out, i was lucky I didn't loose the car in the ditch! The only thing that the car readout said was "service engine soon" but it turned back off once i re-started the car!? :( Please give me some response and if you have heard of this or if it has happend to you before! THANKS!

Allow me....Crank Sensor.

This sounds SO similar to what my car did. First get the car scanned at a shop, then tell us the codes.

I'll assume you turned to the right. You have a 92. Most 92'* have a problem getting fuel when turning right when the fuel gets low. Mine has done it when I had up to 8 gallons left. Usually the engine just stumbles, but sometimes dies completely. The harder you turn, the worse it is.

Well, in fact the car did do that when I only had a little more than a quater of a tank of gas left. that is probably what happend. Now, Bassplayncrowe, and Allmachtige, what is a crank sensore? Sorry, not the best with tecnical stuff .
