This only happened twice, but while driving and steering to the left, it seemed that it sticks for about 5 seconds and then goes back to normal. What could be causing this?


#2

When the steering on my 95 Taurus was momenarily binding up at high speed, it REALLY got my attention.

Swapped the serpentine belt & solved the problem.

The car had 60K miles when this happened, so from then on I replaced the belt every 50K.

Looks like your belt is slipping, either from age or the belt tensioner might need to be replaced.
