Engine Performance problem
1997 Ford Escort 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 152k miles
When my vechicle gets below 5gal of gas remaining my car experiences sudden power loss on right hand turns then recovers when I exit the turn. Does the Escort fuel tank have an internal bladder, and if so what are the odds of the bladder rupturing or deteriorating to cause this problem.
I replaced the fuel sending unit a few weeks ago and noted the screen on the fuel pump was clean.
I have not been able to buy a fuel pressure gauge yet to verify the fuel rail pressure. I have no engine codes and the " Service Engine" light does not illuminate when experiencing this problem.
