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 running......by 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 all.....by 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 in...got 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.
