Why does my 2005 chevy colorado steer so hard I can't turn the wheel unless I'm moving forward also when applying the brake when coming to a stop my engine wants to cut out rpm dropping below 500 help

You may have more than one problem. Start with the power steering. If the power steering pump is causing a problem it may be seizing causing hard steering at slower speeds and putting an extra load on the engine causing the lower RPM's. Have this checked first.

My 2004 just stopped while driving. Oil light came on for a second and had trouble steering to safety. Any thoughts?

The reason you had trouble steering it is because the engine drives a hydraulic pump that powers your power steering. When the engine quits, so does the power steering. The engine stopping would also cause your oil light to come on.
Now, you just have to figure out why your engine quit.

Ford Focus - 2007 Zetec 1600 A high pitch whine is coming from the engine. Occurred yesterday after restarting the car started after a 10 mile drive ad being parked up for an hour in a multi storey car...

Check your power steering fluid level. If it is low that is probably what is causing the noise. The pump is running dry. If that is the problem it means you have a leak somewhere. I have had this issue with my Focus for awhile. I just check the fluid often. I don't fix things until I absolutely have to. Check your manual my Focus uses transmission fluid for the power steering system.

2000 legacy sudden loss of power

I'm not sure which sensor your referring to but the fuel pump & regulator are located in the tank. Did anything bang into the car or tank causing it to be on an angle? Get fuel PSI reading while running & stall & go from there. Where is this suction/clicking sound coming from?

Power steering went out while driving and battery

If the belt gets wet and flies off, or starts to slip, the power steering and alternator will stop spinning causing this condition.

Check belts to see if they are still on the truck and spinning the pulleys of the alternator and power steering pump.

Steering hard /loosing pwer at 40-55mph

Take the car in for a new serpentine belt and tensioner right away before you destroy the engine. The alternator, power steering pump and waterpump are not turning right now because the belt has come off. The battery will die soon because it is not charging, and the engine will overheat and perform it's own little rendition of the china syndrome. When the red warning lights in the dash come on, it generally means; park it unless you're being shot at.

Check engine light comes on

The reason for engine light illumination is to Warn the driver of Faults or upcoming service.
I would be getting the vehicle smartish to a reputable Technician who has OBD analyzing equipment for a check on the faults or service requirement.
There may just be a service due so he can do this or you can do it yourself if competent, he will be able to clear the service/engine light for a fee usually.
Hope this FixYas problem!
