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!
