Default cutting out when cornering

Hello group, this is my first post here so bear with me if this has been asked and answered before...

My 92 Bonneville SSEi will completely loose all engine power when going into even a mild corner as if it was out of gas. This starts to occur as soon as the tank gets to half a tank...Is this something that is just common to the Bonne'*? Any suggestions as to fixing the problem? Besides keeping the tank full

I think this has been mentioned before. Happened to me a couple of times. The only thing that kept me from being pissed off about it was remembering that I'd seen it here.

Just wait til you try to start her when parked facing downhill against a curb with less than 1/4 tank.

I thought I remember somebody solving the problem once upon a time, but I am really going to have to look for it.

My brother fixed it on his 92 SE. I still have that problem on my 92 SSE. I've got the part sheet somewhere. I'll have to look for it.

keep your tank over 1/2 or so and you won't have a problem, it'* a pain in the ***, but for some reason, someone wasn't thinking when they desighned the tank.

I have a member in the club here in Chicago with a similiar problem. The reason why i say that because I don't know what year his car it. He has an SSE too. He said he has to keep a full tank a gas in his car or his will cut off. Strange.

Here'* another link fuddyduddy picked up.
