Default Stalling.

Yes, I am back to the whole issue of the bonnie stalling when it is low on gas. I never got it resolved. I took it to a shop and they said they can't find anything wrong and that they "didn't want to drop the tank just on a hunch." So, what are all of the possible problems that I could be encountering. I would like to figure them out, narrow them down to a few and get it checked out. I would appreciate ALL help. I hope to get this resolved sooner or later, and sooner is always better.

Replace your tank with a 94-95 tank. You have baffles in your tank that come apart after a while and cause this. I believe that 94-95 tanks don't have those baffles. My 95 has 200K and have never once experienced this.

It gets annoying. If I could, I would kick the tank. Nice and square.
