A very Fast leak Is Simple to Diagnose

  1. Start Engine with reservoir Full
  2. Have a Helper to sit inside
  3. Go under vehicle and look where you suspect leak is
  4. Have helper turn steering wheel to
  5. RIGHT or LEFT All the way till it stops and hold it there
  6. If you see it Pouring out from the Area suspected.
  7. That WILL be the HIGH PRESSURE Power searing hose.
  8. Under High Demand they have lots of pressure.
The Low side (RETURN will leak ALL the TIME and just Drip unless there is a Large hole in it
Hope I Have Helped

Power steering line is leeking can I fix it without replacing the line?

You can try LUCAS power steering sealant. It comes in a bottle and you add it to the full line on the dipstck. But I would just replace the line.

Steering wheel is very hard to turn. What could be the problem?

You are either low on fluid or have a return line leaking. Pull the cap off the reservoir and check the level and also if there are bubbles in the fluid. Bubbles indicate a leak in return line or seal.

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.
