Honda Accord steering vibration

I have a 2004 Honda Accord. When cold, parked, at idle the steering wheel has a vibration and when the wheel is turned slightly it trys to go back to where it was turned from. The problem goes away when the car warms up. Is this a problem with the valves in the power steering system?

This sounds like an issue with the power steering rack and pinion unit, poss one of the internal O ring seals leaks when cold, try using LUCAS oils power steering conditioner, it is the only one I know of that really works, also I would recommend you flush the power steering fluid before you add this product.

Idles to low


Clean the throttle body, and check for a bad rear engine mount as this is what usually causes the bad vibration your are getting.

I've got an 08 4cyl and it doesn't really have the vibration unless its really cold. Usually if I give it about 30 seconds...when the rpms start to come down, its barely noticeable.

you may have a pulley out of balance. ie harmonic balancer, steering pump, alternator. try increasing idle, set it at 850-900.
