Here is a classic example of power steering 'whine' and how Accurate Automotive properly fixes this issue on Honda Acura vehicles with the hydraulic power steering system.
While Honda and Acura power steering systems have gradually evolved from hydraulic power assist to electric power steering; there are millions of Honda and Acura vehicles still on the road with hydraulic power steering systems. Over time, the rubber seals in these systems shrink and get hard. This degradation of the rubber seals and hoses can result in both high-pressure fluid leakage and on the low side (suction side of the pump) air infiltration, which can cause the pump to produce a type of 'whining noise'. Regardless of your issue, Accurate Automotive will maintain and repair your Honda or Acura hydraulic power steering system, using the genuine Honda factory replacement seals, hoses and the most critical genuine Honda power steering fluid. We keep a significant number of these parts in stock at all times. Please view the video at the top of this page for one example of a normal repair we find our Honda and Acura customers needing on their vehicle - especially in seasons where we have significantly cooler temperatures.
