my clio has died on me....

  wrx sti ppp (305bhp)
was driving home from work today and my power steering went!!!! i thought i had a flat tyre, but there is no power steering now, u can hardly turn around corners, the engine also cut out at some lights. then when u pulled up outside my house a small amount of smoke was coming from the engine, had a look, it was comming from the left side right near the timing belt, whats up with it, anyone......

At A Guess Your Pas Pump Or One Of The Hoses Has Cracked Or Leaked And That Smoke Would Of Be The Power Steering Fluid Burning On Your Engine.

maybe the smoke was the pump burning out, god knows, was only a little bit of smoke, i turned the engine off, the smoke stoped then turned it on again and it started just a tiny bit
