When making a right hand turn steering was lost and the engine shut off. The car went into the opposing lane but thankfully there were no cars at the light. After starting the engine again, the steering was working again. Took car into Lincoln dealership and they could not find anything wrong with the steering but said the throttle body was bad and there was an issue communicating with the PCM. The throttle body and PCM were both replaced. We have not had it occur again.
