You need to use Honda power sterring fluid. It say so on the power sterring cap inside the hood. I would recommend Honda brake fluid as well to be sure.

What type of power steering fluid does a Acura RSX require?

There is a technical classification for what type of oil it is, but if you are just looking to buy some for your car look for Honda Power Steering Fluid. Yes, Acura is made by Honda. You can always go to your dealership and get "Acura" fluid, but it really is just Honda fluid with a new Acura sticker on it. I wouldn't recommend any Honda or Acura dealership to get fluid from. They overcharge, so just go to a local auto parts store and look for "Honda Power Steering Fluid". Many companies make it.

You put brake fluid where power steeling is supposed to go in is this a big problem can you just take it out and put right fluid in the car was ran only 15 minutes at most?

Both the power steering pump and the brake booster operate hydraulically. Putting brake fluid in the power steering pump will not harm it since brake fluid is a light oil only with different properties. I would only worry if it were the other way around and you put power steering fluid in the brake master cylinder. Power steering fluid doesn't have the heat range or density of brake fluid.
