Hello,
I have a problem with the power steering in my 2001 Acura CL Type S. The steering seems to be unusually stiff, I have found leaks from the power steering reservoir. I have changed the power steering pump also but it did not get any better. When the tires are in ideal condition there is no problem, but when i steer left or right, there is a noise coming from the steering pump. The oil level becomes zero after i drive for around 3-4 miles. Is it a problem with the hoses and their connections?? Is there a clog in the system?? or has my rack and pinion system broken down?? How do i know when the rack and pinion system is broken down and needs to be replaced as i dont find any sort of leaks near the rack and pinion. Most of the oil leaks right underneath the steering pump onto the ground!!

I tried to start my car and it won't. I bought a new battery because the old one was bad but now it's not wanting to turn over. It's been sitting for a few weeks in some cold weather with low gas and I think the gas lines may be froze or my pump has failed. Any thoughts?

No crank no start just a clicking noise from starter once it starts it's fine till the next day

Just wondering what this might be and if my 5 year 100,000 mile Powertrain Warranty will cover it or not. I was driving my car and all of a sudden it felt and sounded like something "popped" or "thumped" under the hood, and a few seconds later my RPM gauge went to 0, my battery, engine, and oil lights came on, and my steering started locking up. So I pulled over and got out, and noticed it was smoking. Any idea what it would be?

Hood release won't pop the hood. Pulling on the cable from under the steering column won't pop the hood. Hood is springy when pressed down, not frozen.

What's the best way to manually pop the latch?
