Lightbulb Engine Shuts Off

Hello, I drive a 1990 Lexus LS 400. It has 161000 miles on it. My question is during the last week I was driving and the engine shuts off. However the car would restart when I put it in park or netural and start the ignition. I am not sure if this has anything to do with it, but it has happen twice and both those times was when I was doing a turn. Any suggestion or help is must appreciated. If you need more info, let me know.
Thank you.

did it stall you mean? It could be a dirty air filter or bad MAF. Does this happen when the AC is on? It could be the car sucked up too much dirt and shut off. IF it shuts off with the AC on as well, then we might have something else. Also, has the car been serviced

No, the engine just turned off. I would be driving (in motion), making a turn (but not stopping) and it would shut off. I don't recall the AC being on. But I am going to get it service soon. Does anyone know of a place I could go that does good service beside a lexus dealer.
Thank you
