Question about 2001 Honda Odyssey

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Odyssey. It's having power steering issues. On low RPM's it's very difficult to turn. On high RPM's it turns fine. Does not matter if the vehicle is moving just gets better with increased RPM. Is that a lack of power, and what could be causing that? FYI: Rack an pinion along with the pump was replaced 18 months ago. It developed a small leak about 3 months ago but I am religious with checking the fluid. And yes I am using Honda fluid. ANY advice is appreciated.

Check for a clogged or pinched feed line or return line between the pump and the rack valve body.

Power steering tank full but still turning hard. 2001 chevy venture. Any ideas


With engine running, steering turned hard right or left, can you see the fluid churn in the power steering reservoir? If not, maybe one of the power steering lines is blocked?

I just wanted to add, with some makes and models. With everything off, I remove the power steering belt. I take the return line loose from pump, aim into container, rotate the pulley by hand, see if any fluid comes out of return line? The return line should be low pressure, usually held to pump by hose clamp. The high pressure line has threaded fittings.

2001 Volkswagen passatt power steering goes out when Rpm get low changed pump it still doing same thing 2.8 liter engine standard transmission


Your pump might have been fine the whole time. If your RPM goes low, your fluid pressures drop. If your power steering gets to the point of failure at low RPMs, I would recommend you re-check how much power steering fluid you have.

Have a 2005 Odyssey and recently having a tough time turning the steering wheel. Checked Power Steering fluid but it is OK. After car gets going it isnt a problem. What is wrong? Temps have been around -5...


More than likely it is still the power steering pump. What is happening is the fluid is heating up and thinning out and cycling through the pump causing it to work normally. There is actually a SB about the hard steer at low speeds on the Odyssey - contact your local dealer and they should be familiar with this issue.

When I turn in my 2002 Honda Odyssey, the steering wheel makes a "vibrating/rubbing" noise. What might be causing this? Thanks.


Does this happen at both high and low speeds? At high speeds I'd suggest that you have the wheel bearing checked. If it's at low speeds, check the wheelwell for parts that might be coming in contact with the tire. Drive VERY slowly and carefully have someone look at it.

Hi Vincent - just wondering if you would have an answer to my problem ie I have a ford escape and steering wheel is hard to turn yet oil is fine and engine is fine, since this problem happend the battery...


Is there any service done on the power steering on the last few days?
Example: replacing high and low pressure hose(s).Leaking power steering rack?
Please place a cardboard on the ground (under the path of all steering components to inspect for leak(s).
It can be multiple spots.Inspect both tie rods for smooth end to end turning operation.(two persons task)
Check power steering for lock up or belt hopping condition.
THESE ARE VERY IMPORTANT STEPS! Mis-diagnosis can cause you $1200 or more.
The most like trouble location (about to leak or burst) is the high pressure hose after the PS pump or between the PS fluid tank.
Check for deform hoses.
The "hard to turn" condition is cause by air pocket / air bubble inside the steering rack.
Worst case is metal fragment inside the rack.
If your 2001 steering is stock and has over ~160,000 miles then you should save up money for a rack + hoses + pump + belt replacement.

I can't get to the high beam bulbs on our 2005 Odyssey. How do I remove the headlight for easier access to the bulbs?


The procedure doesn't call for removing the headlight assembly. It is as follows:
The high beam headlight bulb and the low beam headlight bulb are replaced the same way.

Open the hood. To change the high beam headlight bulb on the passenger’s side, remove the power steering fluid reservoir from its holder by pulling it straight up.

Remove the electrical connector from the bulb by pushing on the tab and pulling the connector down.

Remove the bulb by turning it one quarter turn counterclockwise.

Insert the new bulb into the hole and turn it one-quarter turn clockwise to lock it in place.

Push the electrical connector back onto the bulb. Make sure it is on all the way.

Turn on the headlights to test the new bulb.

If you replaced the high beam headlight bulb on the passenger’s side, reinstall the power steering fluid reservoir.

Hope this helps, but if you are having some specific problem leave a more detailed comment and I will try to help you.
