Exclamation Infrequent but severe hesitation on left turns

My 2005 1500, 4.7 auto, continues to die when I make a left turn, but the kicker is not constant so hard to detect. By infrequent, I cannot make it do it, but trust that at an unopportune time like pulling out in traffic, revs die and nothing works, meaning pushing into neutral etc. I have been blessed to not get T boned. I have had it checked by two reputatable mechanics with nothing showing up on instruments. I did replace one cataytic convertor, changed fuels, replaced other components, tried what I could. Any help will be very much appreciated. Mileage is high, 251000 as I have a small business that requires constant stop and start. One more thing --- of late there are again infrequent times when after starting out, like Friday leaving a Shell Fuel Pump, revs go up and moves out and then all of sudden loses all power and motor quits, throw shift into neutral and fires up like nothing happened. I had a 2002 Dodge Dakota which went well over 300000 miles so I love Dodges as they keep on moving out -- but this is serious issue and not cool.
