2005 Ford Taurus steering problem

My 2005 Taurus was driving fine then all of a sudden the steering wheel started to move back and forth rapidly. When I let go of the wheel the car does not pull to the side, the wheel just moves to the left and right hard and pulls out of my hand. Can anyone tell me what this might be? I have not hit any pot holes or curbs so I know the tires are still balance.

Why won't my 2003 ford taurus start? The theft light is on.


If the key will not turn, tryy wiggling the steering wheel back and forth while trying to turn key. Sometimes you have to pull on it hard to get it to turn and release.

Ford 1993 Taurus steering


Have you checked the power steering fluid level? The reservoir for the fluid will be at the front of the engine, where the belt runs the power steering pump. If it's low or out add a little power steering fluid till full, then start car and slowly turn wheels back and forth from stop to stop-not too ******* the stops (when the steering won't turn further that way...that's what I mean by stops)....Turn wheel one way full travel, then reverse and turn the other way. Check the fluid level again, and add as needed.
If fluid is not low, the belt may be too loose to make the power steering pump work, or you may have a bigger problem that needs professional attewntion.

There is a cluncking noise in the front end when moving the steering wheel front wheel drive


If you are only hearing this clunking sound when you are turning then you need to have your cv axles replaced. Also known as half-axles. In a truck, these are known as the universal joints. You can take your vehicle to the local tire/front end clinic and they will tell you whether or not, it is worth the fix.

Powwer steering out of control


It will probably just sit there when you start the engine, then take off like a rocket when you touch the steering wheel? The wheel will take off in the opposite direction of the way you tried to turn the steering wheel. (you start to turn the wheel to the left and it rips out of your hand and goes right until it slams the full right stop, then rockets back to the left until it hits the full left stop and shoots back to the right again and repeats this process until the engine is shut off.)
If this is the case, you have the hoses from the control valve to the power cylinder reversed.
