My power steering is making noises and when I put power steering fluid in a few hours later it's back to making noises and hard of steering. There's no leaks either.

you have a bad power stering pump you might try taking fluid out using turkey baster trning wheel all the way to right or left and add little at a time while rotating it rt & lf till it squeels each direction allowing fluid to fill the rack & pinon if you have a rack & pinion cylinder on this auto if it ran dry and it's not purged ti will act like what you are discibing add a little start turn lf& rt few times turn off do agian til you top it off. good luck ckeck youtube video.

You are losing power in ignition circuits. Get out your voltmeter and start tracing the circuits till you find the offender.

Sometimes it won't start

Sounds like you may have a starter motor going bad. When they start doing this it is because there is a "bad spot" on the motor armature. It will continue to work each time until by chance, it just happens to stop in that same place again. Usually, it gets worse over time where it starts happening more and more often as more bad spots start to develop on the armature. Then eventually, it gets to where it won't work at all. Disconnecting the battery is probably not doing anything to help you get it started, That is probably just coincidence.

I also would not recommend continuing to disconnect the battery. If there is something else wrong (not the starter motor), it is probably setting a code in the computer. Disconnecting the battery can clear the computer memory and cause this vital information to be lost. You will need this information if you are going to figure out what is going on.

Also, every time you disconnect your battery, your adaptive fuel trim, idle control, and adaptive transmission shift information gets lost. Then when you reconnect the battery, the vehicle can waste a lot of fuel and cause undue wear on your transmission clutches for a few days until it "relearns" this information.

This also causes undue stress and wear on your battery cables that can lead to more serious electrical system problems.

This also causes all of your computer modules to go through a "forced re-boot" every time you do that....anybody that has much experience with a PC at home knows that the best way to destroy a hard drive is to unplug the computer from the wall without properly shutting down then pluging back in again. Files get lost and/or corrupted. If the boot files get corrupted the computer will not reboot at all. Car computers are no different.

Repeatedly disconnecting the battery is just not a good idea.

The car will run for a few then die but when you try to start it agian it will ack like it wants too but dont till you let it sit for about 5 minutes then it will run agian for a few

Find out what is missing when it won't start. Spark or fuel. (I seem to recall ignition module issues fail when hot and loose spark)

That is Limp mode.

Probably a frayed wire to the speed sensor.

Very common. You can access the speed sensor through the left side wheel well. It is a plastic thing.. with a two wire lead coming out of it..

Good luck...
