I have a problem with the power steering in my 2001 Acura CL Type S. The steering seems to be unusually stiff, I have found leaks from the power steering reservoir. I have changed the power steering pump also but it did not get any better. When the tires are in ideal condition there is no problem, but when i steer left or right, there is a noise coming from the steering pump. The oil level becomes zero after i drive for around 3-4 miles. Is it a problem with the hoses and their connections?? Is there a clog in the system?? or has my rack and pinion system broken down?? How do i know when the rack and pinion system is broken down and needs to be replaced as i dont find any sort of leaks near the rack and pinion. Most of the oil leaks right underneath the steering pump onto the ground!!

How would anyone know it was leaking?

Intermittent starting problem in hot weather

Couple years ago I bought my car and 9 months later I was experiencing major problems. First as I was on the high way the car would brake on its own and drive again but then to brake again repeatedly causing my passengers and I to feel jerked until I pulled over on the shoulder. I couldn't exceed 30 mph for that night nor get out of 2nd gear. The following day I took it to a friend of a friends shop who said it was the top dead center (tdc) sensor. So I bought one from oriellys but not even 3 days later the car did same thing but this time I'm allowed to exceed 30 mph and drive in all gears except 3rd

I replaced the EGR Valve as it threw all the codes P0301-P006 then also a random Cylinder misfire along with the P1399 they said that was the EGR valve took out cleaned the best I could and replaced with new. Did nothing else. Still having issues. Engine light flashes when accelerating then stays solid when at higher RMS's. This is a 2001 Acura CL S Type and never had one single problem with this car runs like it just came off the lot. I am shocked to say the least. It does have almost 150K on it so something is bound to happen. It's lagging spitting and misfiring. Should I change the plugs also before taking it to the dealer? I am a female so anything to me is foreign this was just an easy one that I was able to handle on my own. I keep reading about maybe a bad coil. It was pretty grimy and I dug out a ton off stuff. Thanks in advance
