    the problem was i didnt have an power steering fluid.... and i guess that had something to do w/ it, i put more in and it hasnt done it.



    hey guys, long time no post from me, but im back now.
    ok heres my problem:
    when i have about 1/4 of a tank of gas or if its just cold, i will be driving and when i let off the gas, the engine will cut off. especially when i am goin around turns.
    90% of the time when this happens, it is in the morning. but its happened at night as well.
    any ideas? /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    If it only happens on a 1/4 tank, there may stuff inside the tank that clogs up the lines when the level gets low...or maybe it's a clogged fuel filter...

    My dad had a Ford with the cornering problem. It was his fuel filter being clogged.
