HOSE LEAK ,WHICH AT THE TIME MY POWER STEERING MADE NO NOISE. I REPLACED THE POWER STEERING PRESSURE HOSE WITH AN AFTER MARKET ONE. AFTER REPLACING IT A WHINNING NOISE STARTED. I TOOK IT TO THE HONDA DEALER AND HAD MY POWER STEERING PUMP AND RESEVOIR REPLACED. MY CAR STILL MAKES A WHINNING NOISE.ESPECIALLY WHEN I STEP ON THE GAS AND MAKE TURNS. ANY SUGGESTIONS,PLEASE HELP...THANK YOU.

    Yes, take it back to the dealer a complain until you get what you want. I know you paid a good amount of money at the dealer. He who screams the loudest gets what they want

    I'M GONNA TAKE IT BACK TO THE DEALER THIS WEEKEND, BUT I ALREADY KNOW THAT THEY'RE GONNA BLAME THE AFTERMARKET PRESSURE HOSE. WELL I TOOK IT BACK TO THE DEALER AND THEY REPLACED THE BRAND NEW AFTER MARKET POWER STEERING PRESSURE HOSE. THEY SAID THE INNER HOLE OF THE HOSE WAS SMALLER THAN THE ORIGINAL FACTORY ONE WHICH RESTRICTED THE FLUID FLOW IN TURN CAUSED THE WHINNING NOISE. NO MORE NOISE! I THINK I SHOULD GET A REFUND FOR HAVING MY POWER STEERING PUMP REPLACED DUE TO THEY'RE MISDIAGNOSIS..IS THERE A HONDA SIGHT THAT I CAN GO TO ??? I DON'T WANT TO GO BACK TO THE SAME HONDA DEALER
