I have a 98se and I recently changed the plugs, wires, pcv pipe, air and FUEL filter, as well as cleaned out the throttle body and sea foamed thanks to this link http://www.geocities.com/rivierareso...ecleaning.html
for the courage. Before all of this I had a noticable amount of hesitation on turns from a stop. I did all this at once so I'm not sure which one it was but it totally fixed this problem. Runs like a champ now. Before it ran like a 7 year old car. I'm sure it was the fuel filter in my case considering I got blue in the face trying to blow through it after I finally got it off.
At least try the Fuel filter before you go any further.
