    Momentary loss of power after high G turn, but engine does not die.

    Practicing for upcoming autocross by driving aggressively; taking some 90 degree turns at 30+ MPH and also braking hard before other sharp turns. 2002 Eldorado ESC looses power after apex of turn (like a hesitation) for a second or two before recovering. It does not noticeably miss, or stutter, and the engine does not die. Is this a loss of fuel pressure or transmission fluid pressure or what? Upcoming race id December 8th and I need to get it fixed before then.

    I would guess that the fuel may be sloshing to one side of the tank and the pump sucks air. That was a problem in the early '90 Devilles when a tank baffle would come loose (usually with less than 1/4 tank). How much fuel did you have in it?

    This morning it was between 1/4 and 1/2. I will top it off on Friday and see if it happens again. Thanks. I don't want to race on a full tank but would not mind 1/2 to 3/4 since it would help the front to rear weight distribution.

    That shouldn't be the problem if you are over 1/4 from what I've seen in the Devilles. That said, I can't think of any other logical explanation.
