2005 Honda Odyssey Question: Power steering pump
Hi, I went to Honda Dealer shop for 60K service. I told them that, the power steering is not smooth enough. So the customer service executive told me to replace the power steering fluid. After that, I was told to also replace the power steering pump. I've 60K miles on this van. Do I require to replace the power steering pump? What is the advantage? The cost of replacing the pump is $550, which is big enough to make me think more.. - Tell me
I would say that there is a lot of guessing going on. Unless you could prove failure of the pump, I would not commit to such an expense. Chances are pretty good that you will have the same steering concern after the pump is replaced. Power steering fluid will not really change the situation either. But I suppose it was a valiant effort. First hand demonstration of your concern is important, if you haven't done it already to a master certified Honda tech. - DaveJHM
Power steering is Hard to turn , power steering started whineing , I checked fluid & it was good , now I have NO power steering , but from time to time it will work ..
...a dealer to have them check while they were performing recall fix. They stated i needed a new power steering pump. Is that a typical part to be replaced after 70K miles?
Car has 150K miles. Steering already had a little shaking problem while driving. Today it got bit hard to move, when I turn it has a noise coming and I noticed a rubber burning like smell from fron...
Power steering fails when parralel parking. Mechanic cannot find a problem.
