Hmmm, This morning, the car seemed to just say "Nahhhh" when I give it some gas when I went around a turn. it'll go, then, it hesitated... ( Clogged fuel filter? fuel pump going? Clogged cat (doubtful) Something Vacuum-related? (<--- hey look at me , holding a shotgun!)
I'll drive it some more tonight ,and watch the RRMs.
I did notice the fuel pump was pretty loud yesterday...
NO 'weird' noises from the engine compartment.

Auto, V6...

Sorry, I barely wrench much anymore. (not that I ever DID, but lately...I'm wrenching other stuff)

Thanks in advance for your help.

Low on gas. I had a 99 Bonneville that would do that. You could hear the fuel pump noise change and the car hesitated when going around right hand highway ramps when quite low on gas. For me it was kind of a 'very low' warning device.

My thought too.
Until I reworked my fuel gauge senders, in two different 88s, they would suck wind at 1/4 tank indicated.

That seems to be what the issue was.

Thanks
