Have you checked the belt for wear? A loose belt tensioner, may also cause the power steering problem through a slipping belt when wet.

The transmission problem may be corrected by changing the transmission out that doesn't have the code, or rebuilding the transmission, or checking out all connections to the harness (that's time consuming).

We own a 1998 Ford Taurus, that had a tensioner that was weak and the spring broke on it when the water pump and oil pump was being serviced.

Good luck on these repairs.

this is your check engine or service engine soon light or mil {malfunction indicator lamp} your ecm has detected a fault in the systems it monitors and should have a diagnostic trouble code stored you will need to hook to a scanner /code reader and read codes this will tell reason light came on and loss of power if you have a auto zone nearby they provide this service free of charge

The Service Engine Soon light is a notice from the vehicles on-board computer that a problem has been detected somewhere, and service is required. You can isolate the problem by having the "trouble code" displayed for you at an auto parts store for FREE to determine the exact problem, and possible causes. This should be done FIRST, so that you strategically approach the problem directly instead of spending unnecessary money "guessing or assuming". If you are trying to save a few bucks, you may want to invest in a Chilton's manual for you vehicle as well for step-by-step repair, and diagnostic info specifically for your vehicle. I hope this helps,...and good luck!!

Service engine soon.

it mearns that the computer is sensing a failure. You will need to see if it has logged any codes, and troubleshoot from there. You can go to many auto parts suppliers (autozone, ect) and many will read the codes for you, or you can purchase code reader and do it yourself

I have a 2006 mitsubishi galant and the brake light keeps coming on when I turn corners. Just wondering what are the possibilities?

I had the same problem with my 2006 Galant, it turned out to be the first indication that my front driver-side brake pad needed to be replaced. I suggest you get it fixed soon- I continued to drive it for too long after that started happening, that I had to replace the rotor as well.
