is the steering working normal, i mean soft?
Is it worst in the morning and reduce much later when the car is hot?
|Re: Honda Accord 2004 Power Steering Pump by sempeman: 2:29pm On Jan 19, 2015|
No its not soft.
Yes its worst in the morning and reduce later when the car is hot

what sort of noise does it make
you rushed to changed the pump with full diagnose
on average the powering pump makes noise when the fluid is below the minimum level and or when bearing inside is gone
you noise can be anything like inner/outer track rod end
a simple investigation, put the car on rump/lift and turn the steering to hear the sound and where it is coming from

I guess its the o-ring inside the steering pump. I had similar problem but it was fixed at agindigbi in ikeja at a very cheap price..if you happen to be in lagos..let me know so that I give you the number of the man who fixed mine.

Change the power steering o ring. Its a very cheap fix, if u can't do it urself, show this picture to ur mechanic he will know what to d .

making noise because of o ring or because it was leaking and fluid low ?
|Re: Honda Accord 2004 Power Steering Pump by sempeman: 8:57pm On Jan 19, 2015|
The power steering pump is not leaking and the fluid is not low...but when i start the engine in the morning the fluid usually gush out and also bring out little bubbles.

my question is directed to the person who mentioned changing the o-ring
|Re: Honda Accord 2004 Power Steering Pump by GAZZUZZ(m): 9:32pm On Jan 19, 2015|
You bought a bad pump. Get another, and this time do not pay for it unless it works.

This is what I hate about cartalk. Some so called pro think they know it all, and they are very quick to critisize others. Honda power steering whine at cold start doesn't necessarily mean the pump is bad, it can simply mean the o ring is bad and need to be replaced. This is even published in Honda bulletin. I use an accord I have encountered the same problem and a simple o ring change fixed it. I didn't even spend up to 500 naira. Try to make research before criticizing.

it seems like when someone asks you guys you take it the wrong way
check again there is a question mark at the end of my sentence in my 1st post meaning am asking
and it doesnt mean am dismising what you said
Once again i never claimed to be PRO, if people take me as PRO thats how they see me but i have never claimed to one
and also being a pro doesnt mean i know every car inside and out NO,
thats the reason i did put a question mark because you learn in asking and based with experience so far i have never came across such problem and got sorted by changing the o-ring but i didnt dismiss what you said i simply asked a question
me asking had an objective to learn something from your answer
just like i did in the workshop today a nissan quashai came in yesterday with a non working wiper motor, snow has built up on the screen and the lady kept on turning on the wiper until the motor siezed, got her a second hand, connected turn on the wiper and i wouldnt turn, checked the fuse it was blown, replaced it and still it wouldnt turn then unplugged it and put direct 12v to motor it turned, plugged it back turned the switch on and it would turn, then my partner put the negitive of the test meter on negitive terminal of the battery, test meter on 20v testing point then the positive on one of the positve wires to the motor, like magic the motor started to turn and it looked as if the motor has been jump started
so next time will use what we learnt today and if am to tell someone they would 1st question me again and i will to explain to them what happened in our 1st experience and him/her will learn from that if s/he will encounter such a problem

Before you add more to your problems.
The a bad "O" ring will allow air into the pump, which might starve the pump of the required flow of atf fluid, pump will be noisy especially in the morning(when cold), but more important steering will NOT be stiff. Culprit is still your pump get a good one.

Honda uses a special fluid if you are using the wrong fluid all that will happen

Dont mind some people.
I changed this same O-ring on my Honda and it stopped. And you know what, i begged my mechanic to do that, he refused saying that most times he changes something like that the pump fails and he gets the blame. I told him i will not blame him since i asked him to, but he insisted and refused. I did it myself came back to him with proof and its perfect.
Last week he told me he did it for a customer and collected 2k for it.
I have a service manual i got from NL that describes how to change all the other ring seals on the pump that brings back the pump to life and stop leakages. This inlet o-ring solves the whine.
Note: that a bad seal is stiff and loses its rubber feel while a new good one is flexible and softer. OP just change that o-ring. A bad inlet o-ring will allow the pump to suck air into the system creating bubbles or foam in the reservoir tank and may spill out in worst case scenario. However, on the soft part, the bubbles in the system is air which will reduce the efficiency of the pump but not total failure. After the 0-ring change and it doesn't become as soft as it used to be, then there may be another problem with the pump. Other seals of the pump will cause leakage of ATF but not its efficiency.

I can testify to the o-ring change. I had the wine around October last year which pumped oil out but I changed the o-ring which solved it and its working well till today. .

Same thing happened to me. Steering hard in the morning, noisy and bubbles or fluid leaking from reservoir. The problem is AIR. Had to bleed mine and problem stopped. You need to bleed the power steering especially after installing a new one. Its a must. The procedure is simple. If after that you still have the bubbles then change o ring. Bleed mine like thrice before problem stopped.
