Sounds like a power steering line sprung a leak and sprayed fluid over the hot engine. Have them replace the line. It might be covered under the lemon laws in Texas.

You will usually hear a loud whining noise if your power steering unit has drained, especially during turns.

That's possible, or the pump itself. Or maybe the idler pulley that maintains the proper tension on the serpentine belt seized up.

Agreed. Power steering line or possibly the power steering pump. Should be a fairly minor fix if there were no flames. And if the mechanic can’t find the problem, take it to someone competent.

Oh, and extended warranties are a rip-off.
