Default I'M F-ING ANGRY!!!!

Okay, so after school today, I take my brother home (it'* his birthday) and then I am on my way back to the highschool to do some weightlifting. I pull out of my driveway and am procceeding like normal. As I'm heading up a little tiny hill my car stalls out. AGAIN!!! The first time it was at a quater of a tank, secound time it was half a tank, this time..... it was a full f-ing tank. I am getting progressively more angry at the car everytime it does this. What should I do? Is my fuel tank ****? Bad strainer? What else could it be? Last time it happened I took it to the shop and had them look at it. They couldn't find anything wrong with the engine and said that they don't want to go through the whole proccess of dropping the tank just on a "hunch" that it is bad. What should I tell them? I am really confused and need AS MUCH HELP AS POSSIBLE HERE!!!!!!!!!!!! So, please help me out here.

from what i have heard, it is probably the strainer. I would get a new tank, if you have the money. good luck!

Beck, don't replace the TANK as suggested, although a 93-95 tank would solve the stalling inTURNS problem if you have that.

You need a new pump/strainer assembly I'd bet. Can you duplicate it on ramps, or the same hill again?

And please post these things in the 92-99 forum from now on.

Try something simple first. Check that the throttle body bolts are tight. When I first got my Bonne, she would stall on occasion. In the process of cussing at everything, I decided I wanted try and remove/clean the TB. Guess what, the bolts weren't even hand tight. Cranked 'em down with a box wrench and she'* never stalled again

I'm not sure about being able to duplicate it again, but I can try it.

Sorry, I put it here to try and get a little more attention. But I gotta go call the shop and see what they can do for me.

Yeah man, told ya it was probably the Fuel Pump. Since you have to drop the tank to replace the fuel pump, you may as well pick up a 93-95 tank.. with a new fuel pump and strainer. That seems to be the best option, IMO.
