the other day, it was whining during turns and even straight acceleration. then the next morning, BOOM no power steering. yep it all leaked out. somehow. so i probably need a power steering pump. so i can put ps fluid in it to get to work, but it'll be gone when i go home. so i've basically had no power steering for 2 or 3 days. and i'm waiting til tomorrow to get it fixed. not sure how much a used but rebuilt ps pump goes for, anyone want to do a little research for me?
i work allllll day today, and it will be bugging me all day.

so this morning, i go to start Nightfury to get donuts and cuppacino for breakfast. didn't start. WTF??? i look under the hood and what do i see.. the fuel line is "unplugged" and gas sprayed all over my engine bay. so i electrical taped the shit out of it for the time being.
so basically, i'm having a crappy day today. fwiw i'm bringing a fire extinguisher with me to work.
i feel like someone is out to get me. i have never once had any mechanical problems with this car. and all this within days?
here's the line that was mysteriuosly unplugged:

gas around the plugs....

Sorry to hear about the issues. Does sound very weird. Hopefully no other issues!
