Power steering seems to work harder than needed. In a parking lot maneuver one needs to use both hands to turn steering wheel. Local dealer says that there may be a problem with the proportional valve. Can cause accident if driver does not steer with both hands. Also returns to middle later than usual.

Expedition 8-cyl

On a 2004 Ford Expedition, when making a hard right or left turn, steering wheel tends to stick in hard turn, such that it becomes dangerous as steering gets stuck and driver has to wrench wheel back to avoid causing an accident. Ford dealer says that this is a anormal vehicle reaction. In my estimation this is dangerous and Ford needs to recall 2003/2004 Expedition to fix problem withthe power steering.
