I had this exact problem on my 1996 Taurus. The solution in my case was to replace the transmission range sensor. I replaced it myself. It was easy to change. I can't say if that is what is wrong with your Taurus, but it was what was wrong with mine. Good Luck!

This was also the problem with my '96 Taurus... part was also refferd to a Nuetral Safty Switch"

Why is it hard to turn the steering wheel of the Taurus 97?

Most times, if it is hard to steer, there is a need for power steering fluid. If that is not the case the power steering pump itself might be going out. It would be best to take it and have it looked at before it gives anymore trouble.

Why power steering is used?

From what I understand, power steering in cars (vehicles) is simply to make steering the car easier. If it were not for power steering, you would have to use a lot more muscle to turn the steering wheel than you use when you have that power steering in place!


Why do I have intermittent hard steering on my 1997 Ford Taurus?

You're probably low on power steering fluid. I would purchase a bottle of Lucas brand power steering fluid stop leak and conditioner, available at walmart or auto parts stores almost everywhere. You could have issues with the front suspension (such as sway bar links) if this is not the case, and you would want to have those professionally replaced.


Why would you change power steering fluid if the power steering is electric?

If you have an electric power steering system, that means you HAVE NO FLUID. Therefore no fluid to change in the 1st place.
