I have a 2009 RX8 R3 w/20,000 miles on it. Just started it to go get gas and out of no where the power steering stopped working. Yellow steering wheel light w/! Is on. WTF? I know how to drive without...

One of two things have happened:
  1. Your power steering pump went out and needs to be replaced or,
  2. The drive belt that controls the PS pump broke
The RX8 has only two drive belts so if they are both fine and none are broken then it meant that the PS pump itself has went out and needs to be replaced.

Let me know what you think and dont forget to rate the solution.

Thank you and have a great day!

Mazda rx8 steering heavy

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Please try to fill in the power steering fluid on the power steering reservoir. When filling please move the steering wheel to the left and right for the fluid to go down. This can help lighten the steering wheel. Please do check if you have power steering leakage too for this may be the cause of fluid loss.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Steering on masda rx8 very stiff when first driveing then after a couple of miles is ok

the 1st thing to try is flushing the power steering with clean fluid, this may correct the problem, the next step is to see if the power steering pump is defective or the steering rack, this takes special testing and skills, any shop can flush the fluid or u can do it with a suction gun, then add lucas brand power steering sealer and conditioner, this works well if u have a internal fluid pressure leak in the Rack.

Power steering light on and power steering disabled. Problem intermittent-what is cheapest solution?

Check the fluid level. Are you losing fluid from the pump, hoses, or steering rack and pinion cylinder? Look at wrecking yard parts if anything needs to be replaced. If the fluid is just seeping out of a seal, try a seal-softening additive first.

How do you add power steering fluid at a mazda rx8

Ignore earlier post - the RX-8 has an electric power assisted steering system - there are no hydraulics, and therefore no PAS fluid.

2004 Mazda RX8 Power Steering not working and light on.

I would check your power steering fluid level first. If it's full your power steering pump is bad.
