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.

My belts are making a screaming noise when i start car sometimes and while driving sometimes I have a 1991 ex accord honda,

If in fact they are doing it sometimes, but not all the time, this is indicating worn out belts, and they need replacement.
Belts can look good, but can slip and squeal when they get hard and brittle.
I, too, have had that experience with my Hondas.
If the belts did it all the time, you would look for a defect in of the components that the belt is driving. ( Water pump, a/c compressor, idler pulley, power steering pump, alternator, etc.)
God bless your efforts.

I have replaced the steering pump in my 2001 Honda Accord and I still have noise. I have bled the system, have the right level of fluid, right tention on the belt and the noise is still there.

Any chance it is some other component making the noise? Water pump, alternator, etc? Can you describe the noise? To help determine where the noise is coming from, get a large screwdriver and CAREFULLY touch it to each component while placing your ear against the plastic handle. This can help locate the noise, as it may seem to be the ps pump, but is actually the alt. or something else with bearings that are on the way out.

Sputtering Belt in Engine. Slow shifting into gears.

Change the belt it sounds like it may be split somewhere.Just remove it and inspect it .

90% of all transmission problems are due to a defective battery. Why? because of the electronics they run off of. Now is it crank no start or no crank condition.
Start off with battery. Make sure its fully charged and terminals are a-ok. Then do starter checks . Let me know what you got at this point ,, cause chances are if battery died the codes are lost . Keep me posted I
'll get you threw it.

Steering Wheel noise on cold start

this is either a loose belt, or low power steering fluid. Remember that Honda uses a diffrent power steering fluid from everyone else. Make sure it is a Honda compatable fluid, or you will get leaks.

Power steering pump is clicking and whining

It sounds like the power steering hydraulic system has air in it, causing the pump to whine and the bubbles to show up in the fluid. The clicking noise is probably just the power steer pressure switch operating normally, but you should probably take it back in to the repairer and get them to check it over if you're concerned. They should not have given it back to you if the power steer was not bled up properly, or at the very least should have advised you that it was not fully bled, but would come right after a couple of days.

Honda Odyssey EX 2001 - Power Steering Pump

Hi , aparentlyyour mechanic just dont want to check nothing else,any new noise should be checked before major damage may happens,the first noise sounds like the new timing belt is rubbing the cover because they removed the alternator and air conditioner belts to install the timing belt ,may be that they did not re install everything right the way it was.......
