Call dealer with VIN# from vehicle, they may also ask for a set of service code #'s which are on a label usually on glove box door, on spare tire cover, on trunk lid, or on one of the doors or pillars.Hope this helps!

2002 hyundai elantra power stearing pump replaced. Loud squeal and chatter when stearing left or right. HELP

was the p/s system bleed of air properly before running the new pump. wheels should be off the ground and the fluid reservoir full then wheels turned from left to right all the way and top of fluid as needed. then start engine and continue to cut left and right. fluid aeration will cause premature pump failure and noise. also ensure that no other parts are restricted, i have seen faulty valves in the rack or lines cause restrictions in the flow and cause the pump to fail even new ones. hope this will help you

if the rack is leaking then the only option to repair it is to replace it with a remanufactured rack.the noise is probably the power steering pump because it is low on fluid.

Lexus power stearing rack


You should not be afraid to take it back to your mechanic, and tell him that he has not cured the problem.

Possibly it is one of the steering rack pipes that just needs tightening, or it is a high pressure hose faulty, or the pump, or at the worst, maybe the new steering rack is faulty, and he can then sort out a replacement under warranty.

Put some cardboard on the floor, and try to get a pin point, as to the exact source of the drip, this is the true crux of the matter.

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be appreciated Please !

Power stearing luquid leak (Honda Accord 2002 50K milage)

aside from any obvious leaks from the hoses or fittings, or the pump. typically if you were to pull the rubber dust boots of the ends of the rack, any fluid inside the boot would indicate a bad rack. hope this helps.
