2004 Honda Accord "hissing" noise in power steering

When my car is running there is a constant "hissing" noise that seems to be coming from the steering column. It stops when you turn left/right, but as soon as the wheel is back to the middle you can hear it again. Any answers?

    I have the exact same problem. Once the car warms up, the hiss gains in volume. If I move the steering wheel a bit, it will stop. But once it returns to center, it starts again immediately.



    Except for me, this problem has escalated. Now I have partial loss of steering power. Most hard turns require clutching and pressing the gas pedal to aid the weak pump. There are no air bubbles in the reservoir. The problem varies according to vehicle temperature:

    Cold - The pump groans loud when turning the wheel to either left or right lock, and steering is a little tough.

    Hot - The problem worsens greatly. The pump groans loud whenever I do a moderate turn, and requires a lot of arm force. I have to press the clutch and give it some gas in order to make hard turns without straining myself. Loud hiss from the steering column when the wheel is at center position.

SOURCE: Noise when I turn my steering wheel.

If there is fluid in the pump and it makes noise, that may indicate that the pump is going bad. Some PS pumps just make noise. Ford pumps, for example make a lot of noise, and there is nothing wrong with them. If it's a squeal, it might mean the bearings in the pump are going bad.

You might to have a tire shop check the wheel for roundness, not balance. A tire can be balanced and be out of round, causing the shaking you describe. On front wheel drive cars, the wheel/hub assembly may be bad, which a good tire shop can tell you if it is. Can't say if it will be expensive, the hub is relatively inexpensive. Labor will probably be the deal-breaker.

this sounds like an issue with the power steering rack and pinion unit, poss one of the internal O ring seals leaks when cold, try using LUCAS oils power steering conditioner, it is the only one I know of that really works, also I would recommend you flush the power steering fluid before you add this product.

Pilot bearing or a throw bearing is what makes the noise while shifting gears and as for the steering noise, you either have low steering fluid or the steering pump belt is loose.

Two things come to mind: 1) A frozen ball joint in the steering arm, 2) A defective steering rack. Make sure power steering fluid is topped, if you hear a whining noise while turning.
