You did not give me a specific location of leaks. I assume that the power steering leaks was coming from the what we called high pressure side hose its typical on all cars. This hose travel from the power steering canister to the rack and pinion gear on all front wheel drive car. It requires skill and patient to do the job but not impossible. Good luck.

SOURCE: power steering fluid leek on 89 honda accord

Should not be too hard. I have not done one on an 1986 model but I have on a 1983. The principle will be the same.

  • You need to drain the fluid.
  • Disconnect all the pump hoses.
  • Release the pump pivot and adjustment bolts and remove the pump from the vehicle.
Replacement is the reversal of the removal operation.
  • Tighten all the bolts.
  • Adjust the drive belt tension.
  • Fill and bleed the system.
Following the above procedure should get the job done. Take your time doing the job and double check your work at the end of the job. Check for any fluid leeks from the system.

SOURCE: power steering hose cme off causing atf leaking

If the hose clamps onto the rack & pinion,get a new clamp (replace the hose too,its probably worn)Reinstall it.fill the p/s resovoir,start the car (when the fluid gets low,add more fluid)It will make moaning noises.Just make sure the new hose isnt leaking.Turn the steering wheel back & forth a few times,top off the fluid,turn the wheel again,you should be ok.If the hose bolts on to the pump,you will need to change the hose with a wrench.(fluid replacement is the same way.

I have a 90 Honda Prelude si and steam is coming from the over flow tank, but its not showing hot on the gauge.


Sounds like you are having a thermostat problem. It sounds like it is sticking at times and you may also have a bad temp. sensor. At times, if the thermostat sticks in the closed position, the sensor in the outlet side of the t-stat housing will not read the proper engine temp..Next time it gives you problems, lift the hood and carefully check the temp. of both of the water hoses to the radiator. If the top hose feels hot and the lower hose is only warm, then the t-stat. is stuck in the closed position and needs to be replaced.

Hi, you have to remove the power steering pump to get the alternator out. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

    2. Start the engine and allow it to run at fast idle. Turn the steering wheel from lock-to-lock several times, until fluid stops running from the hose. Shut off the engine immediately; don't run the pump without fluid.
    3. Reattach the hose.

  • Disconnect the inlet and outlet hoses at the pump. Remove the drive belt.
  • Remove the mounting bolts/nuts and remove the pump.

    With the power steering quitting immediately, it indicates a broken belt or serious lack of power steeering fluid. If it's fluid, you have a leak allowing it to escape.

    The "tapping noise" sounds like it might be the belt flapping around with engine running.

    check to see if the wiring harness connecting to the plug is not corroded.

    also if all connections are good then your next step lies with the ignition control module.
