Is the fluid pink to dark red color?

Power steering high pressure hose,low pressure and/or steering rack can be the source of the leak.

Why my steering wheel makes a noise when I turn it side to side?


Assume the noise is coming from under the hood. If the noise only occurs at the far extreme turning point in both directions, this is normal as it is straining the power steering system. If the noise occurs all the time, check the level of fluid in the power steering reservoir. If low, probably a leaking hose or reservoir. Add power steering fluid to get level between min and max lines. Should make sound go away. If the noise does not go away and a flush of the system does not correct it, you may need a new power steering system, although this is pretty rare unless a leak has gone on for a long time with little or no fluid.
If noise is inside the car, one of the parts of the steering column or steering wheel may be bad.

Power steering filter


Is it full of power steering fluid ? How are the hose's high pressure and low pressure ? Did you bleed the air out after changing the pump ? There is no filter .
Verify power steering fluid level per operating specification. Refer to Checking and Adding Power Steering Fluid.
Start the engine. Rotate steering wheel from left to right. Check for sign of cavitation or fluid aeration (pump noise/whining).
Verify the fluid level. Repeat the bleed procedure, if necessary.

I have a 2004 honda civic and it makes a droaning noise when i change gears, coudl this be an internal gearbox fault? i also have a constant screaching noise when driving when i slighly move the steering...


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.

When turning wheel a squealing noise comes from the steering coloum.........seems like it might be worse going into a corner hard........may sound like something turning in the coloum itself...............


The squealing noise when turning the steering wheel happens in most cases when the power steering fluind is low. Check to see if there is power steering fluid in the reevoir. If not add fluid to the proper level and the squealing should stop. Good luck

Where s the power steering top up resivoir on my honda civic 1400 imagine??


Follow your fan belts. One of the belts operates the power steering unit. The resivor should be right there with the power steering unit. It is best to check the level when motor is cold. If it has gone completely dry then you will need to get the air out of it after adding fluid. To do this you add the fluid then turn the steering wheel all the way to the right and then back to the left several times. After the steering wheel feels smooth while turning it then you are good to go. Recheck the fluid first after you have turned the steering wheel back and forth and top it off to the mark on the level stick. Hope this helped, raz

Can low steering fluid cause mechanical problems


Problems associated with low power steering fluid…

Hard Vehicle Steering
A low power steering fluid level can often times cause a vehicle's steering to become hard and labored. Adequate amounts of power steering fluid are necessary to enable a vehicle's power steering system to function and operate at optimum levels. A lack of power steering fluid in a vehicle's power steering system reduces the amount of hydraulic fluid pressure necessary to efficiently operating the various parts of the entire power steering system. Power steering fluid supplies the fluid force needed to operate the power steering gears and to enable power steering gearbox operation. Low power steering fluid levels reduce this hydraulic pressure, which commonly results in hard vehicle steering.

Pump Noise
It is very common for a low power steering fluid level to cause significant power steering pump noise. An adequate amount of power steering fluid is required to ensure the proper function and longevity of a power steering pump unit, which is a belt-driven pump responsible for housing and circulating power steering pump fluid. A low level of power steering fluid results in increased power steering pump friction, heat, and wear, all of which can significantly reduce the operational life of the power steering pump while at the same time cause excessive power steering pump noise.

Fluid Boiling
Many times a low power steering fluid level can result in excessive heating of power steering fluid, a condition that can seriously degrade the fluid and cause it to boil. A low power steering fluid level results in less available fluid to both lubricate and cool a power steering pump unit. A lack of power steering pump lubrication and cooling leads to excessive heat being generated within the power steering pump unit itself, a condition that translates into the available level of power steering fluid becoming super-heated and degraded. When this happens it is common for the power steering fluid to boil and lose all of its lubricating and heat-reducing capabilities.

Gearbox Wear
The power steering gearbox is a set of gears within a vehicle's power steering system designed to facilitate movement of a vehicle's front wheels. The power steering gearbox is connected to the power steering pump by hydraulic fluid lines that deliver a constant supply of power steering fluid to the power steering gearbox. A low power steering fluid level, especially a chronic and severe low power steering fluid level, can lead to increased friction and wear within the power steering gearbox assembly, a condition that can significantly shorten the operational life of the power steering gearbox and negatively affect its operation

1997 Honda civic, fan belt?


It sounds like your power steering pump, not the belt. Have u checked the fluid level? If it's low it can make a 'growling' type noise. Any leaks under the car from power steering? U can check by putting a big piece of cardboard under the car at night, check where any leaks show up on it the next morning.
ålso check the belt for fraying or cracks (if u find any, replace it), also the belt tension, if it's loose, the belt may squeal (not what u describe),

Honda Civic Steering problem


Hi Dan

You did not indicate whether you checked the fluid level for your power steering. Please check this first. Please read your owners manual for specific instructions!

You may be low on fluid.

The next step would be to check your engine belt. The power steering pump is driven by a belt. It is possible that you have a loose or worn belt that is not able to turn the pump sufficiently at idle, but when you rev the engine higher, the pump produces sufficient power. One way to test this is to rev the engine, then try to turn the wheel, see if you notice any difference. Let me know.
