    Default 3.2 V6 TC and Power Steering Cut Out???

    Can anyone help or has anyone experienced the same problem,

    For some reason when ever you push the car a little hard (when the TC comes into play for a little bit) the Traction control system turns it self off (warning light comes up) and the Power steering cuts out (warning light and heavy steering) as soon as you turn the engine off then on again they clear and it is ok.

    It is also loses about an inch of water from the engine coolant about every 3 - 4 weeks but i have had it checked over and it isnt the head gasket but unable to pin point the actual problem - maybe related.

    Any info welcomed,

    Default

    I suspect they are unrelated

    The first sounds like CIM module failure
    When this happens, try the indicators and see if they cancel correctly

    The second sounds like either early signs of head gasket failed, when you switch the engine off listen for gurgling, or hard seal failure, check for coolant leaks under the car after it has cooled down after about 3 or 4 hours (more common on engine cooling on cold nights)
