Well, the problem with the 92 strainer is that it was too short to reach fuel when it sloshed to the side.

Possibly your strainer fell off in your 98?

Default turning yields power loss (only sometimes) [subject changed]

on the '92s, did this problem happen at every turn, or only intermittently? my car has had this problem since it was brand new and has worsened with age, but still only does it intermittently. if it was a fuel related problem, i would think that it would happen all the time. i'm thinking it'* a pressure/vaccuum/sensor problem somewhere, either in the air intake, the steering rack or the transaxle. i can rev and turn the wheel all i want in park and it will not lose power.

sorry to be such a pain, but this problem is quite old and getting on my last nerve!

The 92 would do it usually when it had 1/3 tank or less and fuel sloshed away from the strainer, typically on right turns.
