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!

Power steering loss without warning while driving. this occurred 3 times on my way home today


Possible that the steering servo is not activating, check the drive to see if the assistance has stopped - if electrical motor assist or if the belt is loose on the hydraulics pump in the main drive.
Does any indication come up on the dash board- as warning light.

When driven about 10 miles, makes a noise similar to a power steering pump going out, but only when it heats up, power steering fluid is full. Why would it only make the noise when engine is hot?


The Power Steering Pump has a Fluid Cooler, a small radiator located on the bottom of the Van. It is used to cool the power steering fluid off. If there is a blockage problem this will cause overheating.
Although there is fluid, when was the fluid last changed? Then was the last time this entire System was flushed?
However, the Power Steering Pump making noise only when heated is a definite beginning sign that Power Steering Pump Bearings are failing. When these fail, they do so without too much warning, meaning Noise and then failure immediately after!
Before you run out and buy a new Power Steerin Pump, make sure it is in fact the Pump and not the nearby Pulley's or Pump's. Some people rush to judgement and change out the Pump when the nearby pulley bearing was the real culprit.
Let me know if this helped. or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Steering difficult(slow) and a whining noise when turning wheel


The whine is most likely your power steering pump. Check the fluid in the pump. If you are low on power steering fluid you may have a leaking hose or fitting or the seals in the pump may have began leaaking. If you continue to run the auto without power steering fluid you will burn up the power steering pump very quickly.
