Check your hose connections for the power steering pump. as for the shifting, you have an AX-15. I would crawl under it and check the fluid level 1st. When was the last time you had the fluid changed? You will see a fill hole towards the side top area.. undo it, if fluid comes our or you can feel fluid with your finger, the level is good, next would be color.. and smell, burnt smell is bad along with very dark fluid.
