Power Steering and Brake Assist Issues. Help!

Hey guys. So Im driving along the other day, I get to a left hand turn and all of a sudden I loose my power steering and hydraulic braking. Out of nowhere. I drove home and let the car sit overnight, came back and still no PS or brake assist. Brake and power steering fluids are full, car does not leak, no weird smells or anything, no codes, belt is tight. What could it be?

Okay. Drove it for a bit more, and it feels like its turning on and off. Ill get power steering for a bit and then it'll turn off again. Could it be the ps pump? Also i topped up my ps fluid with just ordinary ps fluid recently, and after checking other threads i saw some people use trans fluid?

Sounds like the pump is failing.
Transmission fluid and power steering fluid are very much alike. They are both hydraulic fluid.

Since it is affecting the power assist to both the steering and the brakes, it is a pretty safe bet that the power steering pump is failing.
