    Stalls, burbs, gurgles, dead. Turning left only.

    What on earth TVT! This one has me really scratching my head. Today had to get towed home cause every left hand turn the van would act up as if it was running out of gas. I've got about a half tank left. What on earth would cause this issue only during a left turn??? It progressively got worse each left turn and eventually stalled and could not get it to fire back up. No codes. Any guesses? Anyone ever encounter this?

    Intake tube? It's a wild theory to be sure but, perhaps soft engine mounts allowing the engine to tilt to the right as you turn left and accelerate which causes the engine to torque further to the right opening up a crack in the tube? Otherwise, start with the basics. Spark, fuel, and compression.

    Not so wild, it's a TV after all. The wild part is the "no code" . An air intake issue would certainly leave a trace, so would ignition or fuel issues.
    Just another wild one: Have you recently disconnected and reconnected your ECU?

    I appreciate the input. Turned out to be fuel related. Went through all the easy things with out anything obviuos standing out. I thought maybe fuel related.Drained fuel, put a fresh gallon in and no low fuel light on and I know ive only got a gallon. Ah haa. Drove it fine to gas station still no light, and filled up. Guage didnt move after filled up. Guess it just decided to kick bucket. My gas meter and light has always worked up until now! Guess we'll be going off mileage for time being. Still odd though how it took place. No symptoms currently so im glad. Thanks for the responses 👊
