I drive my car ok, with no problem if I don't break. However, whenever I break to a full stop, I can barely turn my steering wheel. It's so stiff. If I release the break a little bit, I can turn the steering wheel as normal. I sent it to Carvers Auto to check, but the guys there can't find anything wrong. I am guessing it's because of low engine rpm. Does anyone run into similar problems too? Any suggestion why? Thanks.

My car is 2000 Ford Taurus SE.

try replacing the trans filter on the i think driver side under the car engine bay . there like 15-20 buck depending where your at it mite be the problem if not maybe the ps pump or the rack it's self.

That would be the powersteering filter. Low fluid level and/or burned fluid can cause similar problems. On my '99 Duratec the the fluid must be right up to the full line on the reservoir.

Popeye
