Garages have fluid exchange devices that can purge this system of the brake fluid, although my bet is that he tried to refill the powersteering reservoir because a problem already existed. A leak and possible running the pump dry will destroy the pump and a new one will need to be installed. Depending on the amount of brake fluid poured In may actually stop a leak if it is caused by a hard rubber seal as the brake fluid in conjunction with the powersteering fluid will soften and swell the rubber seals. Of course it will also make the rubber swell to the point it no longer fits its intended target shaft. Anyway you need to get the failed part replaced now and the system will be essentially flushed when yo disconnect the lines and drain them.

You will have to raise & support the vehicle

Remove the injector fuses-- so it won't start

Remove the power steering cooler return hose at
reservoir & add a hose to a bottle under vehicle

On a Honda you need Dealer Only Fluid & add to
container,then crank the motor to flush out the brake fluid

It may work or it may have damaged the seals in the entire

Why add fluid in the first place

No systems uses fluid--so is there a leak to be repaired

If flushing it works-- add the Lubgard Purple (Honda Only)
& Yellow Bottle additive or whatever the dealer has

SOURCE: Lost all power steering fluid and brakes

Hi Salmancasmi,
On vehicles with a hydraulic booster you will find that the power steering pump supplies fluid through bot the steering gear box and the hydraulic booster.
Just a visual inspection of the system should point you to the part that failed, most likely a hose. These can be obtained through your local parts store or dealership.
Locate and replace the failed part, refill the reservoir with power steering fluid. With the front of the truck on jack stands, start the truck and turn the steering wheel from full left to full right several times while pumping the brakes. This will remove the air from the system. Recheck for leaks and fluid level and you'll be on your way.
Hope that helps, good luck.

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

SOURCE: oil in water header tank.

oil in header tank indicates a blown head gasket this could also explain the hunting.The brakes might just need bleeding,while this is done you can check for fluid leaks.Shakey steering at a certain speed is wheel balancing,this is quite cheap to fix but it must be done at a tyre fitting garage.hope this helps,good luck.

SOURCE: Where do I pour the power Steering Fluid?

Pull up on the engine cover. It should pop off with slight force. The power steering fluid reservoir is under it.

I'm having problems with the 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.

This car is new to me had work done on stearing last weak ? what kind of fluid dose it need for powerstearing I have heard it is not same as most cars it started making noise when turning after 200 miles...

no no no and not use brake fluid in the steering, this will eat away the seals and blow the system no way should brake fluid be used, you use auto transmission fluid or correct stearing fluid normally dexron2 but no brake fluid...hope this helps

How do i remove the Powersteering pump in my 1998

Replace the ps pump, brake fluid is not a lubricant, your pump is scored, raise the van, block it, remove the sheild, belt and right axle, and remove the pump, you will have to flush the system with 4-5 litres of PS fliud only. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP
