190E dies when turning -help

I have a 1991 190E 2.6 Mercedes. About 3 weeks ago it started to stall when I was making either a left or a right turn. It starts right back up with no problems. Problem is not every
time I turn, only sometimes. Then yesterday I was on the freeway driving up a hill and it did the samething and stalled.. I am scared to drive the car now. This has happened with both a full and half full or below tank of gas. I took it to a mechanic today and of course car would not do it when he was driving so he was unable to diagnose the problem. He did look at the idol and said it was fine though. anyone heard of or experienced this problem before? I dont want to take it to a bouch of mechanics and pay for them to look at it then have problem not occure with them,.
please help

My first guess (and it's only that) would be that a wire has gotten hooked by a steering component. Turn the wheels and break the connection.

1. Perhaps a pressure relief valve on power steering high pressure system. Don't know where this is, but could be stuck, resulting on excessive load on the engine when the wheels are turned causing stalling.
2. Compression. Is the engine tired and has a reduced compression. Power steering puts a high load on the engine at full lock.

I had am Pontiac that did that. It was old and tired with timing chain stretched and worn.
If it happens with high steering wheel effort could be above. If it is a g-force related look for loose connections in ignition area.

We had a 190i in our shop many years ago that died intermittenly when coming to a stop. We found that the power wire to the idle valve goes thru the (fuel pump relay or overvoltage relay, can't remember which, sorry) There was a loose connection found where one of these relays plugged in. This caused the idle valve shut down intermittenly and wasn't noticed till you came to a stop and the engine idled down below it's normal range and died.
Maybe this can be of some help.
