Yea I was just doing a datlog with my race gas and bam I hear a little noise..The car keeps going fine and power seems about the same. I pull over to teh gas station and HOLY shit no power stearing!, I barely make the turn wihtout hitting the sidewalk.

I pop my hood and there's liquid all over my engine...It's horrible :(

Would that even benefit me? Would it make me a little faster or what?

no but seriosuly driving with no power steering is hard...Making those turns is a workout!.

that sucks man. i assume that it is your ps hose? same thing happen to me. try calling comptech and see if they will help u out. when shad was there he had a brand new one sent to me. or try to find out, but im pretty sure that the 05-06 ps hoses are made better if they will fit the 02-04's.

Check the hose adapter where it bolts to the pump. Where the metal hose is connected to the adapter is where it most likely fractured. It's a hairline fracture but fluid should seep out of it when the pump is running. My cure when mine broke...a new stainless line made from the OEM hose.

So I guess I just have to clean it up and drive like that...THis car is little by little becoming more of a pain in the ass.

Fuck it I'll get something better and faster next summer...Maybe an EVO 10 or something that I dont have to Supercharge to be fast. Hopefully that new AWD eclipse is out I wouldnt mind getting that....

I'll just turn this RSX into an ALL out DRagster..lol yea I'm kidding. I'll run high mid 12s with no power steering and call it a day lol.

yeah this car is certainly a pain in the ass. in the last six months, my car has been up and running for maybe 1-2. if it's not the belt shredding, or an oil leak, it's something else. always something.
