2003 316 sprinter engine dies

when cruising along every now and again it feels like the engine dies, as tho i've taken my foot of the throttle. Strangly it seems to do it more going around a left hand bend!!
Could it be the MAF sensor of maybe the TPS?
No error light of messages come up and if i take my foot off the throttle and back on again it is ok for a while

I had purchased a 06' Model in 07 and while i Test Drove it died as i was turning under a bridge had to put in neutral and restart,well happened about 8 times till i finally gave it back,was tired of spending $900 a month for a Van that was SUPPOSE to be NEW and REliable,The DODGE MECHANICS NEVER FIGURED OUT WHAT it WAS they would Just Replace a Part or Tell me they could NOT get it to RE STALL OUT.But it ALWAYS Happened While Braking or Slowing Down While Turning or Exiting.Maybe take it to Mercedes Mechanic,cause DODGE just put their name on it,they DID NOT MAKE IT.
