My mother has a 2003 Honda, the power steering pump was replaced a couple of years ago, and the hoses were repaired recently. However she complains that the car is making noise when she turns the steering wheel, especially when the engine is cold. Since I live far away the only thing that comes to my mind is that there might be some problem with the belt since she says it is not leaking any oil. Does anyone have any other ideas? Also, she normally takes the car to the dealer for the services (even though I've already told her that any certified shop can do the same work for a lot less) and she's been told the last couple of times that the engine mounts need to be replaced. The car must have about 65000 miles, and from what she tells me, the engine isn't shaking at all, so I'm thinking that the dealer only wants her to spend money on something she doesn't need right now. Again, any comments on this?
