Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. If your power steering worked before you took it to the shop then why did you take it to a shop?

The car made a whining sound when the weather was cool!

are you sure the pump was leaking or was it a line or the rack ?

They changed the pump and then said that rack and pinion was broken! And that it needed to be changed . I said no . When they put car back after the pump change now the power steering doesn’t work a it is very hard to turn the wheel ! It was not like that before.

ok, they either didn't bleed the system correctly or they don't know what they are doing. pen the power steering reservoir with the engine running and turn the wheels a few times and let me know if the fluid is foamy

If I have the rack fixed are they being honest with me. Or am I being a fool.

I would get a second opinion. there could be air in the system or they replaced the pump and messed something up in the process.

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
