06 Expedition On Sharp Turns will Stall


Bought the Truck back in Nov 18 for 3G's just to be a point A to Point B Vehicle I got my mechanic to fix most problems they could find.

However, this particular problem would happen if I am trying to park into a Tight Space especially if I cut the wheel all the way to the left or Right while reversing and tapping the gas lightly, the lights I would see on the Dash are Check Engine, Battery and Check Gauge and the oil pressure will drop to Zero like its not getting any Oil. In order for me to start the car again I will have to put the car in park Turn the car off and then turn it back on, the crank seems a bit longer when this happens. The stalling does not happen on long drives or short ones. On hot days if I am driving for a while I will see the Check Gauge Light flash for a moment and then back to normal. While reversing when trying to park if the engine does not cut off the engine will shake violently for about 5 secs and then its back to normal.

Could it be the power Steering Pressure switch?

I thought it was just a problem while reversing because that was the instance that it only happened, but now I really don't know Its not random It happens only in those situations.
Will post pictures and video's if requested.

Iím no mechanic, but Iíd suspect something related to the power steering pump since itís only happening on tight turns.

Ok, thats a start, I was thinking along the electrical mind that there was a short in the steering column could just be a thought.

Adding to my original post from my memory, I started the Truck and turned the wheels as far as I could Left and right and would hear a decompression sound on both sides I wonder if that means anything?

Can you see if there are any portions of any wiring harness anywhere near any of the steering linkages that might be getting pinched?

Nothing, you just crawl under the truck with a flashlight and look.
