Default 2010 honda civic si power steering going out and trans?

Whenever i make more than a half rotation on the steering wheel, it seems like the power steering goes out, then kicks back in when it gets back to normal. What is this? i can be making a right turn, and it just locks up and starts getting really hard to recenter.

Also i have another problem with my tranny when i try to go shift from 2nd to 3rd or 3rd to 4th when i let out the clutch and press the gas it just revs and then goes into gear about 3 sec later after i have already shifted. Do you think its my transmission? I have 3400miles?

The Honda dealer SWEARS nothings wrong.

I baby that car, its my commuter.

sounds like your power steering pumps bearings are screwed

and your clutch is not grabbing so seems like that car is faulty

a clutch shouldnt be bad that fast unless your driving the shit out of that car

Actually last i checked the Civic does NOT use steering pumps. Honda switched the power steering to an electrical steering system due to the fact the hydraulic steering robs the engine of too much HP. So check into it. If your tranny is slipping its definitely your clutch slipping. So if Honda Swears nothing is wrong, take that car to a different dealer.

Take it to a different dealer, sounds like the one you bought it off doesn't want to stand behind it. Get a second opinion and then report the original dealer if there is a problem
