    Power steering issue

    Ok so yesterday all was well. It was kinda rainy out and I felt like playing so I went to an empty parking lot and did a few donuts. After I was done my power steering was out completly. I would assume it is the power steering pump. I have proper amount of fluid and no leaks. Also the strange thing about it is it seems to kick back in every once in a while but only if I am on the gas. I can make a turn at 10 and it will be stiff until I give a little gas and then It seems to go back to normal. I am just looking to see if anyone has any ideas???

    Burnouts can and do take out these PS pumps. They just aren't made to take the increased fatigue and pressure caused by the burn-out.

    It can be an expensive lesson.
