My 2006 saturn stalls when i make a right hand turn!

10

Asked by Mar 04, 2015 at 06:53 PM about the 2006 Saturn ION Coupe Auto

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Sent it to my mechanic when it first happened,but he didn't detect anything.  So I got it
back from him only to have it happen again.  So i brought it back to him.  We both took it
out for a drive and nothing happened.  He then asked me if it happens when the gas is
low in the tank and I couldn't recall.  He said to wait until the car has a 1/4 tank of gas or
less and see if it happens then.  Could the problem be the gauge in the tank?

Not the gage,but you're machanic is thinking it might be the fuel pump starting to fail.

My mechanic did mention the fuel pump. But do you think it will only happen when the fuel level is low?

Yes, it could be sucking up dirt and debris from the bottom of the tank when it is low.

could also be a bad baffle in the tank.
