I thought I would give an update on the situation.

It'* NOT the tank.

It'* NOT the pump.

What could it be?

It was outta gas

Turns out there was a mod done before I got a hold of the car, and it was quite old. It was the "gas gage mod"...y'know the one, with the diode to "fix" the gage issue. Well folks, that ain't a permanent fix. At least, not how this one was done.

Tomorrow, I am going to completely redo that "repair".

A diode or resistor?

A diode only allows voltage/signal one way, a resistor..only allows a certain amount of current through.

Noticed your other thread about probably replacing the tank soon. Think you mentioned the sender. Do you believe this sender to be bad?

May or may not be. I won't know for certain until I repair the wiring at the pump/sender.

That was the fix that was done on this car sometime in its life. But, it was poorly done, and was never taped up or sealed in any fashion. So now, all the wires that were affected by this repair have corroded to the point that cut-n-splicing of new wires are needed.

Default Same problem here

My 95 started doing the same thing. Rt. turns would result in a stall. The car didn't usually die but would stall for several seconds. I hope your issue doesn't lead you down the road I went down. Since it was not terribly uncommon for me to have a quarter of a tank of fuel, this strange behavior caused me to replace the fuel pump & strainer, the fuel filter, later the fuel pressure regulator. I discovered along the way that the UIM was suffering the typical problem. This only after replacing the crankshaft position sensor, and timing chain and gears were replaced. Other than the upper intake manifold which, thank God, many here pointed me to; the only big problem was the two vacuum lines on the throtle body. One is a "T" that'* tied to the pressure regulator and terminates at the vapor collection reservior. The other is a 90 degree "L" which goes to the same reservior. This car has been efffectively dead in the water for 2 months now. I think all issues have been resolved, short a oil pressure problem which is probable related to the flood of coolant in the oil. The first thing I plan to do when I trust this thing enough for a test drive is drive 500 feet to the corner and make a Right turn, on my way to the gas station to get that fuel level above the quarter tank mark. Now I know why grandpa told me (the first time I ran a car out of gas), "Its just as easy to keep the top half of that tank full as the bottom". Best of luck with that issue of yours.

My 92 used to do the same thing until I replaced the pump, sending unit and strainer with a new redisgned one which had a different part number than original.

There was a TSB for the strainer for the 92'* and possibly the 93'* as well.

Here is a link for back when I did mine:

Good luck,
