I've had a lot of bad luck with this car in the past and now more issues have presented themselves.

My Emission System light is on.
The car dies when the foot is not on the gas (so if it is in park or im on the brake for to long, it shuts off)
I can hear something hitting my car when I make turns (sounds like it is coming from above the back right tire, where the gas tank is).

Any suggestions, things I should check, etc?

Im goin guess your emissions light has something to do with the car dying, just a gues.

FTF (First Things First).

Get the diagnostic code read. Places like Autozone will read the codes for free.

As for noises like "above the right rear tire), get under there and do a visual inspection, tugging to see if anything is obviously loose, and compare the right side to the left side. But first, check the obvious -- check the spare tire area to see if the tire, jack, or anything else is loose and moving around.
