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.

Check power steering fluid in honda accord 1994


The power steering reservoir (I believe) is on the drivers side just behind the headlight. about mid-way down the side of the reservoir are a high and low mark. The reservoir should be just at or below the high mark when the vehicle is off. ONLY USE HONDA POWER STEERING FLUID. There are certain conditioners and additives in the Honda fluid that keep seals in the system in good condition. Using a generic/aftermarket fluid will cause the seals to shrink and the system will likely develop leaks.

Try to get a power steering fluid flush, there may be contaminants in the fluid
Make sure someone has not put the wrong fluid in the vehicle.

this is either a loose belt, or low power steering fluid. Remember that Honda uses a diffrent power steering fluid from everyone else. Make sure it is a Honda compatable fluid, or you will get leaks.
