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.

Sounds like you need a new power steering hose. To verify this, I would dry up any wet areas on the hose and pump with a towel, get a flashlight and start the vehicle and try to determine the exact site of the leak which is usually at the ends of the hoses. Good luck!

It might be the rack and pinion kit (seals)

I had this problem 2 months ago... replaced the powersteering pump 3 times until I convinced the mechanics to look at the rack and pinion. there they found the leak, especially when I turned the wheel.. They first kept telling me there was air in the lines and it would go away. but that never happened.

My power steering fluid is leaking, i fill it up and it all leaks out does this mean the the hose is busted or the power steering gear is no good, yet when i fill it back up with power steering fluid it...


The most common cause is a leak in the power steering line. With someone sitting in the car,(and the car running) watch the power steering line and ask them to turn the wheel in both directions. A leak in the power steering line will spurt fluid during this exercise whereas a leak in the power steering unit itself would tend to ooze fluid due to less pressure.

I hear a kind of squeal or winding noise whenever turning the steering wheel in my 2005 Rendezvous,and I've added power steering fluid


your power steering belt might be loose or may have stretched due to weather related issues, or may have the adjustment worked loose. suggest you adjust the tension on the belt[power steering belt] youneed to have it tightened. you may even need a replacement pump. is it leaking fluid onto the ground? if so, it may be a loose hose or a busted hose. if you are mechanically inclined, please repost with specifics on if it's leaking fluid or belt is squealing? otherwise,i suggest you have it looked at from a professional. hope this helps and if you need further assistance with replacement of power steering pump, or directions of the belt tension,just ask. we will be happy to assist!

Power steering hose to rack and pinion is leaking how to replace


drain the fluid from the power steering resevoir undo the hose fittings from both ends and remove from the car, replace with the new one, top up the resevoir and turn the steering from side to side then recheck the fluid level.
your hose may run through an outer protection cover which will need to be removed first before removing the hose

Check your Power Steering Fluid. I would suspect its low, if so, you have a leak and the most common thing to leak is the High Pressure Hose. Have that looked at ASAP, you dont want to destroy the PS Pump.

Power Steering


Could be a hose or the gasket on top cover or the unit it's self could have an internal leak. Clean the hoses and continually check for fluid on a daily basis. Also look for cracks and signs of soft spots on the hoses especially near the connections, this should help you narrow down where the fluid is going.
