Honda accord 2000 model power steering sprays out of resevoir

I sprayed down the entire area with engine cleaner and washed it all down to get a clean surface. it actually "boils" the power steering fluid almost immediately. after a short drive, all the fluid had sprayed from the reservoir out of the top past the cap. the problem isn't the cap, its something wrong with the pressure in the system itself and although a very simple one, i do not know why this is happening. please help

SOURCE: POWER STEERING FLUID CONTAMINATED--FOAMING

Hi Patsy

Sounds very much like your P/Steering Fluid is contaminated.

Possibly condensation, or someone is playing tricks on you ?

I had a friend with a BMW, ask me for help, few weeks back.

He had put just a little brake fluid in by mistake, and it gave exactly your problem.

You will have to change the Power Steering Fluid in the system.

Good Luck !

John.

SOURCE: power steering fluid blowing all over engine compartment

somewhere there is a air leak on the suction side of the pump.  Try tightening the clamps and connections.

If youre able to, try accessing it from the bottom. It will be held down by screws, most likely 10mm sockets.

Ny 2000 SL 1.9 liter started to run rough like it is getting to much gas or not enough air, Start good.


Sounds like your AIC air idle control. It's attached to your throttle body. If you take off the throttlebody [2 10mm bolts ] you can check and clean the AIC. It comes off the TB with 2 torx screws. When you get it off, clean the plunger with brake cleaner and clean the TB front and back. The back may have carbon build up. Scrape off and spray down. Replace the opposite way. This only takes 30 minutes so its worth the checking. If car still runs rough, spray the brake cleaner directly onto the intake manifold gasket while it's running. If the car changes in idol at all, the gasket is shot. Concentrate on cylinder 1 and 2. This is the area beside the power steering pump. Spray it good while listening. Also spray the vacuum hoses that go up to the intake. If there is any leaks this is the way to find them.. The onlt other thing I can think of is a weak coil, but I think you will find the problem with the brake cleaner. Let me know how you make out. Cheers from Nova Scotia!

1990 honda accord surges at idle, what can cause this?


It is likely a vacuum leak (from a hose or the intake manifold), or a sensor is not working properly (like the throttle position sensor, MAF sensor, idle air control ).
Spray carburetor cleaner around suspect areas to find a vacuum leak. The spray will be sucked into engine and raise idle. Spray around the intake manifold where it mates to head for leaks there.
Also check for trouble codes. Maybe a sensor threw a trouble code.
Good luck.

My1995 accord its leaking oil steadily from the bottom of my engine. I can't see where because the entire underside of my engine is coated in oil. I think it may be my oil pan gasket. My worst fear is that...


Get a couple of cans of Carb and choke Cleaner and SPRAY ENTIRE UNDERSIDE. This is degrease everything. Wipe clean and run car while looking for leak spot now.

My 93 honda accord has a problem with idleing the rpms go up and down after worming up


do the procedure below.

, I want you to get a can of intake cleaner (ABOUT $5.00) from any local auto parts store like NAPA or Carquest, do not use carburetor spray, intake cleaner only or u will damage the Teflon coating inside the throttle valve and air bypass valve, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Rpms go up and down even when you are not stepping on the gas 1995 honda accord v6,it jumps when it wants to help, does this modle have a fuel filter? that might be dirty?


Look for a vacuum leak in engine area. Take a couple of drops of dish soap in a spray water bottle and spray around fual injector and hose area. If miss idle goes away as you spray that it. Only spray not soak.
The problem could also be a fuel injector regulator. If the gas filter was bad it would run poor, down on power but not really have the RPM jump around. First things first

I have a 2000 honda accord that i wash the engine and now....


Unless you sprayed high pressure water into the bay for a bit then it wouldnt have affected it. 98-02 accords are notorious for slipping auto transmissions around 130k (requiring a replacement). Sounds like it just coincided with you washing the car.

Power steering leak


To try to find the leak, purchase a spray can of engine cleaner and spray the entire area of the pump and hoses. Then wash off with a garden hose. Fill pump reservoir with fluid. Have someone turn the steering wheel while you look in that area of the pump and hoses with a flashlight for the leak. Be careful of rotating fan and belts!

91 honda accord cut off


Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake
