Electric Power steering failure

Takes a scanner to pull the codes for steering. Not a code reader. steering won't throw a light either.

How much am i looking at spending to have transmission fluid pressure sensor replaced or repaired?

There's a youtube link that may help:
Transmission Pressure Control Solenoid PCS

You can get a pressure sensor from Ebay (but do check it is the correct one for your vehicle...). It's not a big job to change one.:
buick transmission pressure sensor

However, check the condition of your transmission fluid first. If it smells burnt or is blackish - change it.

Code came up to P1251 with engine toyota 1KD - FTV. Engine lacks power while driving while engine light on dash board lights up

I have found those code to be shown in not only over boost conditions (wastegate) but EGR flow as well as Catalyst conditions.

Being that you are lacking power I suggest you check the EGR for being stuck open, or the catalyst for being clogged.

These engines do not like light driving, you should drive them hard from time to time to kep the catalysts clean of debris.

Cadillac escalade transmission problem TFP switch trouble code and how to fix the delay shifting my car is cadillac escalde 2008

Transmission fluid pressure switches, i would say you have internal transmission problems, weak pump or internal leakage but to have four bad pressure switches is very very unheard off, i would have a transmission shop check it and maybe do a pressure test and leak test. it sounds like it may be time for a rebuild on that transmission.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 8Cyl4.7L When when driving over 50 miles per hour will lose all power whats wrong?

When you say it loses power, do you mean electrical power or engine power ?
You would need to look at the fuse boxes for a loss of electrical power, and use a scanner or code reader to check the computer for trouble codes for a loss of engine power.

It doesnt do it usually when driving but if the engine is at normal operating temps and after a shut down for a few minutes it is dificult to start and the reduced engine power light flashes on the screen...

You are not supposed to just clear the codes, but read them and interpret them.
The reduced engine power light means it is going into limp home mode.
You then are not supposed to drive it.
Tell us the codes and them maybe we can help you.
Don't keep driving it, or you will eventually get totally stuck.
The codes are extremely important, and should be fixed.

Ford fiesta power loss

You need to check for codes to begin with. If no codes then we can start guessing. A code is pretty strait forward. Without a code, hands on will be the only way to diagnose this issue.
