Question about 2001 Honda Accord
Changed timing belt so i wouldnt have a problem. now there is a noise sounds like air in power steering but they have bled several times but still same sound what else could it be resulting from the change. didnt have noise before this
When changing the timing belt, many folks find it much easier if they remove the P.S. pressure hose from the pump, then move the pump off to the side. However, this can sometimes disturb the seal on the pump inlet hose. There is an o ring on the pump fitting that can harden with age, as can the inlet hose itself. This hose is held on by only a spring type clamp, which, if disturbed may cause the pump to **** in air, causing noise and fluid foaming. Remember, it is the inlet side of the pump, even though it was the pressure line that was removed. Best to replace o rings on both fittings and install a screw type hose clamp on the inlet hose.

I dont undrstand what timing belt change has to do wid a noisey steering pump.drain the oil out off the pump ,turn the wheel fully to the right whilst engine is running ,than pour fluid back into resorvoir pump ,than turn the wheel fully to the left .,keep spinning the steering wheel left and right untill the pump stops squelling.
