sounds fuel related
when was the last time your fuel filter was changed?

check fuel pressure on the rail

also could be a faulty fuel pump and or Strainer

What year & trim level? Some of the early 90'* Bonnes had problems with the baffles in the fuel tank causing engine stalls to occur during turns. The 92-99 veterans should be chiming in, just be patient.

Terrnce, notice under each of our posts, we have the year and trim levels of our car? You can do that in your profile. It'll help us to help you.

It'* most likely your strainer assembly in the tank. You'll have to drop the tank to access it.

I am 99% sure it is your stainer on you pump, mine did the exact same thing, mine was so bad that if I parked on an incline, my car wouldn't even start untill I rolled down and got on level surface.

One more thing, you might as well put a new pump in because mine was getting weak and under heavy acceloration, the pump couldn't keep up, I think some crap from the tank got in the pump and made it weak.

good luck.

Mine does sort the same think but the tank meter is about the empty line of tank right hand turn the car acts like not getting enough but as soon the fuel levels out my car is fine. I just don't let it get that low any more
