natedog_1959 Right before my power steering pump took a dump, it died like described above a few times. It only occurred when it was worked hard with elevated rpms. Probably a case of cavatating fluid, and poor pump internals. Ford replaced the pump for free and I now run Redline power steering fluid. Nate.

nitrous231 food for thought.. maybe the engine/clutch/gear part has something to do with cruise control... i've heard of cc messing up before.

phlame0ne Well, I have experienced that same issue with the power steering. It just went out in the middle of the turn, then was back on right after that.

I wonder if the fluid is all going to one side of the reservoir during the turn, starving the pump, making it go out???

BLKEUROSVTZX5 You know I thought I was smokin crack a few months ago..........I was making a left turn shifting from 1st to 2nd when I noticed I had no power steering........and it wouldnt come out of 1st gear like the engine died but was still in gear turning over the motor...ofcourse my stereo was cranking so I couldnt hear my motor but I reved it up with the clutch in and I watched my tach climb so knew it was still this time I already had pulled it to the edge of the road and shut my stereo off. It was still running but still stuck in 1st gear and tried turning the steering wheel and no power steering at this time Im wondering what the hell these two things have in common to fail together. So I shut it down....take a gander under the hood and find nothing! So I got back on my cell phone, dialed the dealership I bought it from so I could ask them what kinda of $&(* they were selling and decide to start it back up again....... when I realize it was back to normal again!!!!!!!!!!!! havent had a problem with it since so I dont really have a clue if our problems are the same but Ill never forget that little experience.

ModemJunki It almost sounds like you got air in the rack. I would think if it was heat related, someone else would have reported this. After all, you can't be the first to go chasing after twisties in an SVT...

jpickles Wow that sucks. Never had anything like that happen to me, and I've gone through the paces with my car. Let us know what happens.
