Hey Guys,

Does anybody out there understand why my car's engine cuts in and out when i turn around a right corner? It only does it when i start accelerating and if the corner is too sharp. Also, at higher speeds and higher gears, the angle of turning reduces and pretty much cuts in and out at about 10-20 degrees when turning right. My thoughts are:

1. Distrubutor
2. Possibly the gas tank, and when turning right, the bag blocks the path to the injectors.

PLEASE HELP!! This is driving me insane Crazy.

Thank you so much for the help Smile!! I'll go home and test the injectors! I didn't even think about that! That makes perfect sense why the engine would cut out and such. Thanks again! If you have any problems with your car, i've dealt with quite a few, so just ask and i hope i can help you out!

Has anything been done at the tank? New fuel pump/gas gauge, perhaps a dent or something? Is it better with a full tank of gas? TMK there isn't a bag in the gas tank but baffles that slow down sloshing around of fuel that are metal,
