title says it. at low rpms in a higher gear or at high rpms in a lower gear if i go to turn down a road or make a sharp curve and gas it the motor kills out. after warming up and having the S%!* ran out of it the problem seems to get worse. could this be a fuel filter maby? we dont have that ethanol BS mixed in the gas around here and i changed my filter a few months back but thats what it seems like. could it be more serious or more simple than that?

Fuel starvation is a big problem with all of these cars.

Fuel pump could be the source, but I would start with replacing the fuel filter.

If you have one that is dirty/clogged, then you will have a starvation issue.

But ONLY if you have less than 1/4 tank or so.

If this issue occurs when the tank is greater than 1/2 full, the it is probably the fuel pump.

To echo what others have already said, engine cut-out in a curve, especially with less than 1/4 tank of gas on board, is a classic symptom of the fuel-pump failure that plagued the '00-'01 models. You have a 100,000mi warranty on your fuel pump. See your dealer.
