Default 2010 honda civic si power steering going out?

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.

And i dont drive the car hard. Its just my commuter car. I have something way sicker than a civic when i wanna have fun. Lol

i also have a 2010 Civic SI Sedan

the power steering thing, i have to say me and none of my friends (i have 3 friends with 2010 SI's also), none of us have that problem. so i think it might be your own cars problem? try checking the power steering fluid.

the the shifting on the other hand, SI models 09-10 (FOR SURE) 2nd gear has a "grinding" or non-smooth shifting problem. especially when racing/redlining. third gear, has a problem where the gear doesn't stay in place. sometimes i'll be driving, already in 3rd gear, foot off the clutch and everything, and it'll pop back out into neutral. my friend said to take it to the dealership and they'll fix it because i'm pretty sure your car is still under warranty? if the mechanics say they don't find anything, take them for a drive. make sure it happens during the drive so they can't bs you.

your car has electrical power steering, I have seen a few problems with the power steering control unit. If that doesn't fix it then the power steering rack will need to be replaced

As for the transmission there is a TSB for the 3rd gear on the 2006-2009 SI, not sure if it applies to the 2010 model though
