Question about 2000 Honda Accord
My son has a 2000 honda accord and the power steering has quit working. He put fluid in but that didn't solve the problem. Nothing seems to be leaking...HELP !!
A concerned Mom
The first thing you have to ask yourself is "where did the old fluid go in the first place?"
Most likely, it is leaking from the steering rack itself, and into the dust boots, which is why you can't see it.
If the system was completely empty, you will have to fill it, and turn the wheel from left to right, all the way from "lock to lock" each way. This can be hard, but that's what you have to do to get the fluid back into the system.
It "should" only take 3-4 complete turns back and forth for it to work, unless there's a major leak. Then, top off the system.
Look under the car for any signs of fluid "weeping" from out of the steering rack.
