SOURCE: power steering fluid leek on 89 honda accord

Should not be too hard. I have not done one on an 1986 model but I have on a 1983. The principle will be the same.

  • You need to drain the fluid.
  • Disconnect all the pump hoses.
  • Release the pump pivot and adjustment bolts and remove the pump from the vehicle.
Replacement is the reversal of the removal operation.
  • Tighten all the bolts.
  • Adjust the drive belt tension.
  • Fill and bleed the system.
Following the above procedure should get the job done. Take your time doing the job and double check your work at the end of the job. Check for any fluid leeks from the system.

Hey, here's the procedure, disable air bag, if equipped w/ one, disconnect the pump return hose from the reservoir and place the end in a large container. Plug the port in the reservoir. Start the engine and turn the steering wheel lock to lock several times, until fluid stops running from the hose. Turn off engine immediately. Re-attach hose. Disconnect the inlet and outlet hoses at the pump. Remove the drive belt. Remove the mounting bolts/nuts and remove pump.
Install in reverse order. Adjust belt tension,fill ps reservoir and bleed any air from the system (to bleed air from system, fill reservoir, start engine and allow to idle, turn wheel from side to side all the way several times. Shut off, fill if necessary.
. Tighten bolts to : Thru bolt 30 ft lbs., mounting nut 16 ft lbs.

Depends on the part to be replaced. The pump is pretty straightforward with the correct tools and costs about $60 to $100 if you do it yourself (I own an Intrepid, similar to the LHS and I work on it a lot) . If it's a metal hose, this is going to be about $30 to $50 or more and will need a flare nut wrench, along with other hand tools. If this is attached to the steering rack, you may have to move other parts out of the way. This is not a hard job either, but could be time consuming and be careful not to cross thread the fittings.

Dear bigwood_84, Sat 02-21-2009 12:46pm EST (USA)

Try a can of "Bars' Leak" for power steering leaks 1st available at your local auto parts store. It's cheap and can't hurt but may fix your problem!

Advanced Auto Parts has a tool lending policy and a lot of good advice!

SOURCE: illustrations of removal of power steering pump on

Here is a good link. Check out the video. Changing the pump is a pretty simple task, especially if you bought the pump with a new pulley. If you only have the pump you will need a pulley removal/installation tool. Check your belts to see if they need replacing because now would be a good time to do it since they have to come off to take off the power steering pump.

What is recommended repair for power steering leak?


That problem does pose a fire risk. Power steering fluid is light weight oil. If the oil spreads to the manifold for the exhaust it can catch fire. IT is not clear where the leak is from what you have posted but the cost that you were quoted is way too high. A pump is not that expensive and neither are the hoses or the labor to work on them. The moving parts on the steering axle could be that expensive and rebuilding or replacing them can be costly.

Power steering noise


cars to cost money, and is endless..... ins. and repairs and fuel.
but only a hands on guy can tell this. no web bunny. but here.
1: low tire pressure, my POS suzuki makes noise any time tires low.
2: air in the system, (there are FSM instructions on how to fix that)
3: bad P/s pump or other other power steering parts. or leaks in these parts, even air leaks.

changing the pump and not getting the air out is a 100% failure.
RTM
on my jeep they sell a special cap for the P/S pump.
and has a test vacuum nipple on top,
i attached my hand vacuum pump and pump it to 28 HG inches
in 5min , all air is gone like magic, (saves huge labor)
or
as the FSM states. (from first ever made)
1: put car up on stands , up front.
2: start the engine.
3: cycle steering wheel min to max,CW and CCW like a mad man.
this act purges air.
if the air comes back, the system is breached somehow.
not all problems are corrected by swapping pumps.
not at all.

Leaking power steering 2001 renault megane cabriolet


OK... You see it under the car, right? Go in the engine and under it to wipe splashed power steering fluid off the surfaces. Next, put white paper towels under the areas of the engine below where the power stearing pump and hoses are. Run the vehicle at idle and turn the stearing wheel left and right while someone looks under the engine and back to the hoses and stearing pump on top. Yo might be lucky and see spirting from a hose or fitting! If not there should be dripping onto the paper eventually. Turn off the engine and look for streams running down those hoses. Follow the streams upstream to the leak or leaks. If they are from cracked hose, chamge both hoses. If they are from a seal in the power steering pump, replace or rebuild the pump.

Does a 1997 grand gt 3.1 liter have rack & pinion steering? I'm told the power steering went out and I don't know if it might be the pump or what.


Your car does have rack and pinion steering. If all of the fluid leaked out somewhere and you continued to drive, you probably have 2 problems to repair:

1. What ever started leaking (return hose, rack, pressure hose, or could just be the pump itself)
2. Power steering pump was damaged from lack of lubrication (fluid)

How to fix a power steering leak for a chevy impala 2001


Is the leak coming from a hose or from the pump itself...If its a hose, most likely the factory crimp clamps gave way...Pry them off and replace with a hose clamp...If it's the pump itself, then the diaphragm is most likely warn out, and the pump itself will need to be replaced...You should be able to tell easily where its leaking by turning on the vehicle, make sure the unit is full of fluid, and have someone turn the steering hard right or left and the pressure will cause the fluid to leak or stream out of the problem area...As a note if its a fairly strong leak/stream the over-the-counter stop leak products will not work...tg
