New Owner of 1991 Jeep Wrangler

Howdy folks !!

I recently purchased a 1991 Wrangler 4 Cylinder, and a problem has popped up: The engine cuts out then I have half a tank or less in gas, and I take a sharp left turn around 25 MPH or faster. When the tank is full, the problem clears up. My pops says it may be some gunk in the tank sloshing around ... or maybe a ballast plate .. Anyone have any other ideas as to where I can look ?

Thanks for your time !!

Yes but if ur going around corners and it's shutting off it's a very high probability that ur problem is in the tank.
