Customer Question
Just replaced the power...

Just replaced the power steering pump on my 2005 mdx and filled reservoir. The steering wheel will barely budge now.

Mechanic's Assistant: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?

That's why I replaced it

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '05 Acura?

Mdx

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes myself. I flushed out all the old fluid, pulled the old pump off the car engine, put the new one on with new orings, put the belt back on, filled reservoir to top fill line

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Thats it

What Customers are Saying:

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.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

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.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

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.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
