What does it mean when the power steering light comes on?


You have one of several problems. The first thing to do, is open the hood(I will take you step, by step here). Now look at the power steering pump, and remove the cap(if you turn the cap over, you will see the fluid level stick(or dip stick) made onto the cap). Check the level. You just may be low. Most cars and trucks today have a sensor built in for the level of fluids, and pressure. If its low, add some fluid. Transmission fluid is about the same and can be used. Once that is done, check you hoses and the seals for leaks. Where you park, do you see red stains? That would be the start of seeing a leak. I hope this is your problem. That or a bad sensor. The next problem is make sure the belt for the pump is snug( no slippage). Are you hearing and squealing from under the hood? That's the sound of a belt slipping. If still having a problem, let your mechanic check the pump and control arm out for leaks. This does get expensive on the repair. Hopefully its just the pump is low. Hope this helps, let me know.

Replace power steering pump


The procedure is as follows:--- 1) Locate the power steering pump on the driver's side of the motor, which is mounted in front of the engine, near the top.2) You will see a fill spout coming out of the pump with a cap on it that says "power steering fluid."
3) Remove the negative battery cable from the battery
4) Remove the cap from the power steering pump,allow the fluid to drain into the pan.
5) Loosen the bolts that hold the power steering pump to the engine block with a socket wrench. Once the pump is loose, remove the belt from the pulley on the power steering pump. Remove the pump from the engine compartment.
6) Insert new power steering pump in reverse.
7) Reattach the power steering hoses and verify they are secure. Fill the new power steering pump with fluid to the full line shown on the dipstick on the back of the cap for your power steering pump. Place the cap back on the power steering pump.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

Power steering leaks from the cap


could be overfull
remove excess to the full mark on the dipstick
could be a problem power steering pump bypassing excessive oil back to the reservoir under pressure and heating and expanding the oil
take it to an accredited power steering service center and have a pressure test done on the pump
the humming noise indicates a valve problem leaking under pressure

I'm having problems with the steering...is there powersteering for this particular car


Yes, you do have power steering. Exactly what is going on with the steering? Does the steering wheel seem to be jerking or twitching as you turn? You may be able to pour in some Honda steering fluid (or Import Fluid Approved for Honda). It will be a red cap to the right as you are looking at the engine. If this fixes the problem temporarily, then you need to find where it is leaking from to fix it.

After I replaced the power steering pump and reservoir on my 2002 Jeep, I still get air in the system. Where could it be coming from?


Your problem could be a pressure side hose that has a rupture that only leaks in extreme conditions. Inspect to replace with new to repair problem. First make sure you have removed the pump caps off of the hose fittings. If ok, it appears you may have a stuck valve in the rack assembly. Replacing the rack should solve your problem. ------- The new pump should be self-bleeding by turning the wheels left and right. Let sit over night to release air bubbles, recheck fluid level.------ Check the tension of the drive belts on the pump, as they may be loose. The power steering pump and reservoir is located on the front of the engine driven by one of the fan belts. There is a removable cap on the top with a dipstick attached. With the engine off, fill this up to the full mark with power steering fluid. Replace the cap, start the engine and check for leaks. On the back of the pump are two hoses either one could be leaking. REPAIR PROCEDURE:
1. Wipe the power steering cap and area free of dirt. Remove the power steering cap.

2. Use a siphon pump to remove as much fluid as possible from the power steering fluid reservoir.

3. With a helper in the vehicle, raise the vehicle on an appropriate hoist.

WARNING :POWER STEERING FLUID, ENGINE PARTS, AND THE EXHAUST SYSTEM MAY BE EXTREMELY HOT IF THE ENGINE HAS BEEN RUNNING. DO NOT START ENGINE WITH ANY LOOSE OR DISCONNECTED HOSES. DO NOT ALLOW HOSES OR POWER STEERING FLUID TO TOUCH HOT EXHAUST MANI FOLD OR CATALYST.
4. Locate the power steering cooler attached to the crossmember support plate. Slide back the clamp and disconnect one of the two power steering return hoses at the power steering oil cooler and drain fluid in an appropriate container.
5. Have the helper turn the steering wheel back and forth quickly several times to force as much fluid as possible from the steering gear.
6. Reconnect the hose at the oil cooler using the original clamp.
7. Lower vehicle so the vehicle tires are not contacting the ground.
9. For proper fluid fill and bleeding air from the power steering system:

a. Fill the power steering reservoir to the top of the fill range using Mopar power steering fluid (ATF+4) p/n 05013458AA.

b. With the engine OFF and the vehicles tires off the ground, slowly turn the steering wheel back and forth (lock to lock) slowly 20 times to force fluid into the steering gear.

c. Fill the power steering reservoir to the top of the fill range.

d. Start engine and let run for a few seconds, then turn oft engine.

e. Check fluid level and add if necessary.

f. Start engine, and slowly turn the steering wheel lightly contacting the left and right stops.

g. Stop the engine and check fluid level. Add fluid if necessary.

h. Lower vehicle, start engine and slowly turn steering wheel lock-to-lock.

I. Stop engine and check fluid level. Add fluid if necessary.

j. If fluid is extremely foamy, allow vehicle to stabilize a few minutes, then repeat steps "i" and "j" until the fluid level remains constant after running the engine and turning the steering wheel from lock to lock.

10. Inform the vehicle owner/operator that a steering vibration may be noted for a few hundred miles until the air is completely removed from the steering system.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
