    My Sable is doing the same. My code reader says it has a faulty speed sensor. I have not yet had an opportunity to replace it yet to see.

I hace a 19196 sable-the problem is the transaxle speed sensor-this part sends all speed info to the computer ..-First symptom(speedometer stops working and then transmission shifts erratacially and power steering becomes hard and engine light comes on..The computer on this all eletronic car cannot send proper signals to the speedo-trans-power steering and other functions without knowing how fast or slow the car is going..Have the SPEED SENSOR mounted on top of the tranaxle replaced and all will be well.Part is not to expensive.labor can vary depending whether you have 3.0OHV or DOHC engine-some cars have to have exhaust dropped to get at it-Good Luck All

    Follw Up

    I had the Output Speed Sensor Replaced this morning..

    Parts $62.00

    Labor $120.00

    all symptoms as described above are gone and car drives and shifts normal and power steering too-with engine light out..

    This is the solution.....
