Does it require that you drop the tank to replace the pump? and if so, how many hours of work should I expect from a mechanic?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I can't take a call right now. I'm on a call/work meeting.
Mechanic for Honda: Tim Mohr, ASE Master Tech replied 1 year ago

no problem, are you planning on doing this yourself?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I'm not sure. If I can access it from the trunk or back seat I might attempt this on my own. If it's a large job, I'll look for help.
Mechanic for Honda: Tim Mohr, ASE Master Tech replied 1 year ago

no, the tank has to be removed to replace the pump, its not difficult, but you must drain the tank first, would youn like the procedure for removing the tank?

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

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

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
