Acura Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
im cam, a licenced auto tech.these hondas and acuras are notorious for air getting trapped in the system.some require a vacuum bleeder to get all of the air out of the system.after doing any power steering repair on these, a proper bleeding is crucial on these models.i will usually fill the system, and with the wheels off the ground and engine off, turn the steering wheel from left to right full lock to lock for a good five minutes, this can help burp the system.you might have to do this a few times and shut the vehicle off and wait for it to settle and repeat.
there is also issues with the oring leaking and sucking in air on the return hose going in to the pump.this might have to be replaced if it was disturbed. very common problem.ive done belts on these, and after it started whining because i moved the return line and cause a air suction leak.some of these also have the return live looping higher than the pump itself. this will hold a air pocket and require a vacuum bleed with a pump to remove this air pocket
