SOURCE: replace fuel pump
Fuel injection motors have in the tank fuel pump and screen .Access from under back seat,fold forward and move carpet forward after popping out plastic carpet retainer plugs.move floor plate,phillips screwdriver ,no need to unplug electric.remove gas hose,tuck forward out of way.unplug electric plug and remove screws from top of tank and gently pull up and tilt toward gas tank filler so that the gas gauge float and rod is not ruined.the plastic pickup screen will need to be folded to get out of tank.removing the float controll with small nuts is a good idea. the pump has a screw in the bottom that probably needs a vise grip if the phillips head rounds out. everthing is slip apart from this point.pay attention to plastic over the intake nipple and rubber o ring and piece up in the intake line.ebay has reasonable pumps.look at pictures and see the screen and plastic parts that you may need.the rubber on bottom of pump may need to be trimmed because of groove channel may have metal insert in your new pump. unless new one is with new pump.kind of tricky to put back together.but is do able .

Hello, I have had the same problem and turned out to be the EGR valve position sensor. The sensor is part of the car's emissions system and it regulates the position of the EGR valve by sending voltage readings to the computer under the dash. Wrong voltage will give wrong position readings to the computer and the computer will open it too far which causes the car to have a flat spot. You can disconnect the EGR valve to see if that solves the problem before replacing anything. The EGR valve is closed when the engine is cold all of the time if working properly and opens under various conditions when engine warms to reduce NOX emissions.

Hello, I had a similar problem and it was the EGR valve opening when it shouldn't. It is not supposed to open when the engine is cold. If it does, the engine will cut out especially when manifold vacuum increases. Disconnect EGR valve temporarily to see if that's the problem and ensure that it is not partially stuck open. They get clogged with carbon and can be removed and cleaned by removing the two bolts holding it to the intake manifold on the right side of the engine.
Try driving is different gears and see if it always does it at 20mph, regardless of the gear you are in. Most likely it does it based upon engine vacuum level. Put your car in a different gear and see if you can make it act up at a different speed than before. This will help you pinpoint the problem. Just post again and let me know what happens.

there are 2 bolts on each side and around the steering colume that need to be removed. Sometimes there is a brace in middle of dash against the firewall too. depends on what day the car was built and how conscoius the assembler was on that day

SOURCE: I am looking for where
Your horn will be located below the passenger side headlamp mounting bracket. It has a green/red wire running to it. If the wiring is good than check the horn relay (behind left side of the instrument panel) and also fuse labeled STOP (15 amp). If all of this is good than either the horn switch on steering wheel is bad or the horn itself is bad.
