It is not recommended due to the make up of chemicals in the fluid that protect the seals. If your in a jam and have no other available it can be used. But Honda will not recomend that due to warranty issues. If you need to add regular go ahead but then drain it as soon as you can and refill with the fluid recomended by Honda, the clear stuff!
The steering system is electric on this vehicle so there is no fluid. The unit is inside the vehicle by the drivers knees and doesn't need any
fluid or maintenance. Any problems will usually turn on the check
HEY DO THIS,YOU NEED TO BLEED SYSTEM. TO BLEED POWER STEERING SYSTEM.TO DO THIS.FILL THE POWER STEERING RESERVOIR TO COLD FULL MARK ON DIP STICK.WAIT A FEW MINITES,FLUID LEVEL DROP ADD MORE FLUID UNTIL REACH COLD MARK ON THE DIP STICK..WAIT FEW MINUTES.START ENGINE LET IT RUN FOR 2 OR 3 SECONDS.TURN OFF ENGINE CHECK POWER STEERING FLUID ADD MORE FLUID.DO THIS UNTIL FLUID LEVEL STOP DROPPING.WHEN FLUID LEVEL STOP DROPPING.SAFELY RAISE FRONT OF THE VECHICLE UNTIL FRONT WHEELS DONT TOUCH THE GROUND.START ENGINE UP.TURN THE STEERING WHEEL GENTLY FROM STOP TO STOP,CHECK THE RESERVOIR FLUID LEVEL LOOKS GOOD TURN OFF ENGINE LOWER VECHICLE .LOWER VECHICLE TO GROUND. LET VECHICLE SET FOR 2 MINUTES CHECK POWER STEERING FLUID LEVEL.IF STILL LOW ADD LITTLE MORE.TO THE COLD FULL MARK ON DIP STICK. DONT OVER FILL BECAUSE FLUID LEVEL RISES WHEN IT GET HOT.WHEN DONE IF STEERING WHEEL STILL FEEL HARD TO TURN YOU SEE AIR BUBBLES IN FLUID THATS WHEN FLUID HAS A TAN LOOKING COLOR WAIT 5 MINUTES AND.REPEAT THE BLEEDING PROCESS. DONT DRIVE OR OPERATE VECHICLE ON HIGHWAY UNTIL POWER STEERING HAS NORMAL OPERATION.
Follow your fan belts. One of the belts operates the power steering unit. The resivor should be right there with the power steering unit. It is best to check the level when motor is cold. If it has gone completely dry then you will need to get the air out of it after adding fluid. To do this you add the fluid then turn the steering wheel all the way to the right and then back to the left several times. After the steering wheel feels smooth while turning it then you are good to go. Recheck the fluid first after you have turned the steering wheel back and forth and top it off to the mark on the level stick. Hope this helped, raz
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.
