power steering

  1. Power Steering failed while driving. Hit curb - Honda says not their fault

    Problems & Issues
    Hi All, First post and unfortunately not a happy one. I'm hoping someone here can guide me in the right direction. I used to be a member of a Mustang forum and they had a Ford contact to help with any issues that aren't being addressed at the dealer/mechanic. Hoping this forum has something...
  2. 2017 power steering electronic brain malfunction!

    Problems & Issues
    So I bought a CR-V and less than 24 hrs after driving it home, the electronic brain for the power steering went haywire--luckily it was under warranty. They fixed it in 2 days. However, my trust in this car has gone way downhill. Can you imagine purchasing a new car and then it does this...
  3. AC stops working when hot

    Problems & Issues
    2008 CR-V, I have replaced the compressor and dryer receiver, brand new ac relays, condenser fan is running fine, but when the compressor tries to kick in it sounds like the power steering pump is shot. The pump rattles when it's not super hot and sitting in the shade (I live in Phoenix... So...
  4. Help identify sound - replaced PS pump

    Problems & Issues
    Hi fellow CR-V owners, I purchased a CR-V about two months ago, got a great deal and it is a 2002 with 97k miles! Two days later, of course the check engine light comes on. Since then I went through 4 bad power steering pumps until I finally got one that worked. I also replaced the belt...
  5. Rack and Pinion

    Maintenance and Service
    So I took my 08 CRV in for the door lock TSB. I was notified that the rack and pinion is leaking. I looked at the right boot no leak. I looked at the left boot and I could see some oil spots (possible seeping seal). Has anybody had this issue? Dealer quoted me $2200 and this seems really...
  6. NW Houston - Garage Recommendations anyone?

    Maintenance and Service
    Have a leaky power steering rack kit. New kit install by Honda was quoted at $2,100. I see remanufactured ones installed with my google at $300 or less. But would like to find a good garage to perform the work, as the car only has about 50K miles. Any recommendations for garages who are...
  7. Power steering fluid exchange

    Maintenance and Service
    I have a 2008 CR-V. I just brought it back from the dealer who gave it a 15-point inspection. One issue that the adviser recommended was a "power-steering fluid exchange." He said the fluid was "dirty." I've read differing opinions about whether the power-steering fluid needs to be exchanged or...
  8. 2002 Engine Noises, ticking and chirping

    Problems & Issues
    I've got two noises that I can't track down. Looking for the assist. The first is a ticking noise coming from the engine. It speeds up and slows down with RPMs and is there regardless of engine temp. Using a screwdriver stethoscope, the noise seems to be loudest on the passenger side, then gets...
  9. Squeaking on steering

    Problems & Issues
    A bit of an odd one which I have only identified because there is a compulsory 50mph section on the M1 for 18 miles or so south of Sheffield. I put the 2008 2.2 diesel CRV into cruise control at precisely 50 mph (ok 52 but don't tell anyone!) and all is fine except for a slight irritating squeal...
  10. 2008 50,600 miles needs power steering rebuilt?

    Problems & Issues
    Hello all, Have any of you had issues with power steering on the 2008 CR-V? For the first 36,000 miles I took the car exclusively to the dealer for maintenance. Always a clean report. First time I take it in for an oil change [I]after[I] the warranty expires and I'm told that there is a...
  11. 2007 Power Steering Noise

    Problems & Issues
    My 2007 CRV has 79K miles and has never had trouble until now. After driving long distances, the power steering pump begins to whine and just gets worse until allowed to stop and cool. It recovers quickly after stopping and doesn't ever make the noise on shorter trips. The power steering fluid...
  12. Power steering fluid

    Maintenance and Service
    is it all right to use prestone stop leak power steering fluid in my V, it says compatible with most fluids and i called Honda and they said it should work, but of course they insisted that i buy their brand. I was just wondering if anybody knows what might come of using this, i was extreamly...
