I had a filter screen come off of a newly installed fuel pump (dealer installed) and when i was below 1/4 and turned right or came to a stop, it (the pump) would squeal high pitched like then the car would just quit. No warning besides the noise. Apparently some part of the contraption would cover up the inlet and cutoff the fuel.

Believe me..I'm not sure by any means.

Most likely it'll have another time or two before it'* under control. Hardest part of an intermittent problem is replicating.

Hoorrrrrayyyy

The condition duplicated. Yes.. I stalled at a light after hard braking. It appears my car mysteriously doesn't like being under 3 gallons and getting whiplash when trying to stop.

I put some food in the tummy and can't replaicate again.

I'm hoping everything is up to par now. I'm also confident that she'll make the 8 hr drive down at the end of the week.

All is well until you drop the nose the ground stopping.

Who knows why the baffles aren't working like they should. Maybe I'm being too rough at the stop or the baffles broke loose when I zipped over that retread.

Good news...I haven't had a repeated stalling since keeping the tank over 1/3 full.

Up next is checking the torque on the knock sensors. I may have skipped the torque spec when installing...IF I even took them out. Anyone had experience getting to the back sensor?
