2006 Honda Accord Question: Power Steering Noise

 

Question

Visitor, 3.5L V6, Clearfield, UT, March 29, 2010, 12:02

6 weeks ago - Mechanic replaced power steering pump and pressure hose - $900

Steering continued to make grinding noise but mechanic stated that this was normal and should go away. It didn't. Now noise is louder and hard to turn. Took it back and they told be that my rack and pinion seals are sucking in air and need to be replaced and will cost, you guessed it, $900. I'm not buying that there is a seal problem because there are no leaks. PSF is brownish in color. Any ideas?

    The problem is a very simple to fix. The O-Ring that connects one hose to the P/S is bad, it has to be replace. The Honda part number is P/N 91345-RDA-A01 ...

    The problem as stated above is a leak, air is coming in by the O-ring not doing its proper job. Overall you need the O-ring, which runs about $1.5 from Honda dealerships and Honda P/S fluid, about $3 for a bottle.
