I've been experiencing problems with acceleration. Thank you.
The problem is intermittent. It usually works fine at first but after about 20 minutes of driving the steering becomes very heavy. Sometimes it stays that way but often the power steering will kick in and out several times during a drive. I see that this problem is fairly common among Taurus owners. It's a very unsafe condition and very expensive to repair. Seems like a recall is in order!

It felt like brake were engaged, then i heard a loud pop now i have to replace transmission & my wheels still wont turn!
Once it goes through first gear it clears up no issue, cam shaft censor and another censor was tested two weeks ago and tested fine.
