It has a diesel engine so brakes get pressure off of power steering pump.


power assist come from power sterrig pump
brake master cylinder produces brake pressure
if no pwer assist check power sterring fluides and lines
assuming the pump is good do to steering o.k.(not mention)
if no pedal pressure check fluide level top up and depressed sevral time then check for leakage if nothing found may be flowing back to powersterring reservoir check to see if level whent up

Leaking either trans or power steer fluid. 1 or 2 drops per day under left front area


it sounds like power sterring, check level of fluid, inspect around pulley, if it is wet or oily looking, the seal is going bad, you can put some power sterring stop leak in it, it will buy you some time until you can change the pump

When driving the EPS light on the dash board come on and the sterring become stiff. when i turn off the ignition and start the engine again the EPS light come on and off normally and the every thing return...


EPS stands for Electric Power Steering. Hyundais have electric power steering instead of belt driven pumps. But they still require power steering fluid, Check the fluid to see if it is low. That would trigger the signal to come on.

Power steering is weak and pump is whining, also the brakes are a little mushy. Is there a booster pump that affects both of these? Fluids seem fine.


If your power steering is whining you may just be low on power sterring fluid. I would check that first. If that is good your power steering pump may be on its way out.

There is a power brake booster in your system, but that should not affect if your brakes feel "mushy". I would look at the master cylinder, you probably need a new master cylinder they have a tendency to leak fluid past the seals as they age giving your pedal a mushy feeling. I woould also check your brake lines on each wheel to see if one might be leaking, this will give you a mushy feel as well. I doubt that is the case if you aren't loosing fluid however.

LOST MY POWER STERRING AND POWER BRAKES ON MY


check for a blown power steering line, lack of fluid in the power steering reservoir, and check to see if the pump is blown. i believe the brake boost on this truck is assisted by the pressure and flow of the power steering pump. also check for leaks on steering gear box

Do I need to change brake fluid, clutch fluid and power steering fluid in my 2000 Honda ex 2Dr. coupe? It has 97,000 miles on it.


Unless you have a record of these fluids being changed in the past 18 months you should definitely change them. These fluids will degrade over time and need to be changed at appropriate intervals.
You should also flush the engine radiator and cooling system and replace with new coolant to the manufacturer's specs unless this has been done in the past 18 months.
Also ensure you change the engine oil and filter frequently (certainly more frequently than the manufacturer maximum interval specs which is based on optimum driving conditions which does not reflect reality.)

Frequent fluid changes = cheap preventative maintenance.

Brake fluid - every 2 years minimum
Clutch fluid - every 2 1/2 years minimum
PS fluid - every 3 years
Coolant flush and change - every 2 years
Engine oil - every 3500-4000 miles or 5 months minimum whichever is sooner
Oil filter - every second oil change.
