Usually when I am coasting and pulling into a parking space ect., as soon as I turn the steering wheel the Mazda Tribute accelerates without me pressing anything. Almost crashed into a car and a wall so far. It only lurches it seems though. It doesn't continue to accelerate.

What to do next?
Power steering was whining and grinding I removed and cleaned the outside of pump then noticed that the pump was spinning freely so I reinstalled the pump and it isn't whining or grinding but their isn't any power steering now. Should I have primed the pump before installation?
2004 Mazda Tribute Question: No Check Engine Light illuminated but when I start my vehicle and it idles and runs fine for one minute. Then when I press the gas it bogs down and will not exceed 3000 RPM. No power when pressing the accelerator, sounds like its not breathing right.
It is a faint flicker of the oil light, when I am at high speed and then slow down, as in highway traffic, the light flickers. When I go back up to highway speed it stops flashing. It does not do it if I am not on the highway.
