Check the reservoir at regular intervals, and add the recommended fluid as necessary. Always use Honda Power Steering Fluid. Using any other type of power steering fluid or automatic transmission fluid can cause increased wear and poor steering in cold weather.
NOTE If the fluid is contaminated, the screen in the reservoir may be partially blocked. Replace the reservoir if necessary.

the chances are slim but very possible..sense the new pumps you buy are rebuilt units.....sense it worked before you replaced it,,this is about the only possibility
