Default 06 PT Cruiser stalls and dies while driving

I have a 2006 PT Cruiser Turbo with 109000 miles on it. Just recently it stated to stall when I slowed down to turn or come to a stop sign. Now the engine turns off. Sometimes the check engine light comes on but then turns off right away so it's hard to pull a code. Any suggestions what the problem could be?

I had a similar problem, but I got the code for the O2 sensor...once I replaced it, problem went away.

Even though the light goes out there still may be a saved code so I would try to read it anyway. Can be a lot of things. If it dies abruptly I don't see an 02. Start the car if you can and start wiggling the wires and vacuum hoses and see if you can get it to die or stubble. Give it a good visual check. Check for a very loose batt cable also.

Do the key dance and see what code you get.
