87 el camino with a 4.3 TBI. If I make a sharp right turn with a half tank of gas the engine will stall. The gas guage will go over to empty when I make the righ turn. Sometimes it will stall at a stop light if I sit there awhile. Any ideas. Thanks

Bad baffles in the fuel tank let the fuel slosh and uncover the pick up for the pump. You may have to replace the tank.
