2001 Honda Civic Question: how to fix 2001 Honda Civic Power Steering and how much it cost?

Have you checked the power steering fluid level? Low fluid can make the pump noisier than usual. If it is low, you may have a leak somewhere that requires attention.
Other than that, you may have wear to the pump itself, causing the noise.

Thank you for your feedback so promptly. i was thinking the same diagnosis. Power steering problem, but i want an expert opinion. Any idea how much it may cost in a regular mechanic shop. I now the Honda Dealer is very expensive, by experience.

The best thing to do is make a few calls to the facilities in the directory. Some may provide a complimentary diagnosis, some may have a modest fee. Unfortunately it would be difficult to say what something would cost without knowing what is wrong. Best of luck!
