CAR SUDDENLY LOSES POWER STEERING. SHUTTING OFF THE CAR ALLOWS THE POWER STEERING TO RESET AND WORK AGAIN BUT IT LOSES THE POWER STEERING AGAIN AT RANDOM TIMES. MOST OF THE TIME IT ONLY WORKS FOR 30 SECONDS, SOMETIMES THE ENTIRE TRIP IN THE CAR, AND OTHER TIMES IT CUTS OFF IN THE MIDDLE OF A TRIP. ESPECIALLY DANGEROUS WHEN IT SHUTS OFF IN THE MIDDLE OF A TURN. COBALTS AND PONTIAC G5 HAVE HAD SIMILAR PROBLEMS RESULTING IN A RECALL. SAME STEERING COMPONENTS?
