When my tank is @ half full or less and I take a tight turn (Sharp corner or going 45+ off an exit [exits are sharp on Cape Cod]) MY engine will just idle for about 5 seconds and then it will rev back up again. Does this happen with all 1st gen mx6's or just mine. I can do the same thing in my girlfriend's '90 Corolla Sedan and I've never had a problem.

Again, Dammit

The other day I was close to Empty (no light yet, about 230 mi from fillup on 93) and this ricy accord was driving really slow. We both got on the highway and I floored it to pass him and the same problem happened, engine idles for 5 seconds and then I got gas again and I was off, Past the accord, thankfully. I need to know if something is wrone with MY car or if that happens to EVERYONE.

Never happened to me. Check your plug wires and the connection to your airflow meter.

You fuel pump is telling you its tired. Bcause its easy to draw gas from a full tank. But when the tank gets low if has to create a vacume in the tank to get at the gas. But yours is to weak to get the gas. So, you loose fuel pressure and the car stumbles.
