When trying to make a turn on wet roadway (not a puddle of water) or trying to turn at a light for instance while it is raining, even at a low rate of speed, the power steering locks and the car will not continue to turn, causing traffic behind you to come to a screeching halt.after stopping the steering will slowly loosens up allowing you to complete the turn. I have had it checked out with my repair garage but they couldn't find anything. Since I am aware of this happening I'm very careful when making a turn in the rain. I'm thankful I wasn't on the interstate doing 60.

This northstar engine has leaked oil, (not burning it) since 40,000 miles. I use 2 or more quarts of oil between oil changes. It leaks whenever it is parked. I have spent monies on this, but it appears a major engine repair is needed. Some say, the bolts were too short, and others say, this defect continued until the 2006 year.
