My Accord has 224,000 miles on it and I recently started having a problem with the power steering fluid overflowing from the reservoir and when I check the fluid level the fluid is foamy and then when it...


Air is getting into the fluid. This is usually from a bad o-ring on the pump where the return hose from the reservoir connects. Replace that hose and the o-ring. You don't say what year, some had a recall for this problem.

How to fix AUDI steering oil owerflows from reservoir


Check up the hydraulic power steering pump.
See picture below for 1.6, 1.8 liters Audi (4 cyl.) engines:

If you find leaks and noise when runing, the hydraulic vane type pump is damaged. The pump inputs air inside and mix air with oil resulting foam. Therefore fluid volume inside steering instalation rises. Then pressure overflows oil from the reservoir. You need repair or replace hydraulic vane type steering pump.

Check power steering fluid in honda accord 1994


The power steering reservoir (I believe) is on the drivers side just behind the headlight. about mid-way down the side of the reservoir are a high and low mark. The reservoir should be just at or below the high mark when the vehicle is off. ONLY USE HONDA POWER STEERING FLUID. There are certain conditioners and additives in the Honda fluid that keep seals in the system in good condition. Using a generic/aftermarket fluid will cause the seals to shrink and the system will likely develop leaks.

Power steering reservoir has small foam like bubbles when engine is turned on


no history, why did you add fluid? ( it dont just go away. by self)
did you use the wrong fluid, Jeeps use very special fluid
if you use the wrong fluid or mix them (10x worse that) it will fail.
call jeep and ask them what is the correct fluid.
i once did it wrong (thanks to NAPA lies) and used the wrong fluid,
at he time there was no after market fluid for jeeps.
i had to go to jeep. and buy it.
1st hit on a real jeep forum
try there.

1996 honda accord after changing the power steering belt and run the eng, the power steering reservor is over flowing and lots of bubbes. and loud noise every time you turn to lt and rt .the lines was...


It sounds as if you have a volume of air in your power steering system. This is causing the bubbling and also some of the noise you might be generating when you turn the wheels hard right or hard left. This air might have been introduced if your old belt was slipping so much that the pump was essentially not operating and fluid wasn't regularly circulating throughout the system. Another, more expensive possibility is that your old belt was slipping because the power steering pump itself was starting to fail, and the new, grippier belt is turning the damaged pump and showing you its lack of functionality.
The first and easiest thing to do would be to bleed the system. Open the hood and take the cover of the power steering fluid reservoir. With the engine off but the steering wheel unlocked, slowly turn the steering wheel all the way to one side and then to the other. Repeat this several times while watching the power steering reservoir. Is the fluid bubbling? If so, good, you're purging air out of your system. In general, this is easier with the front wheels off the ground, but that is not absolutely necessary (if you have strong arms).
Once you have purged the system, put the cap back on the power steering reservoir, topping it off if the fluid level has dropped to the fill mark. Now, restart your car and observe the power steering pump. Does it seem to be operating quietly and smoothly? If you touch the pump 1-2 minutes after the engine has been running, is it hot to the touch? It will probably be warm, but _hot_ is an indication that something is overheating inside the pump. Is the power steering fluid very dark colored or does it smell burned? This is also a sign that the fluid should be changed ASAP and that some internal damage may have occurred. Burned fluid isn't necessarily an indication that your power steering pump is bad. However, if after changing your PS fluid the new fluid quickly becomes dark and starts smelling burned, then it's probably time to start saving money for a new or rebuilt power steering pump.

How frequent should I change my power steering fluid? I have a 2004 Honda Accord LX with 70524 miles.


You should never have to replace the power steering fluid in your vehicle. But if you still want to, the best way is to use a turkey baster and pull as much fluid out of the reservoir and into a suitable container, then refill the power steering reservoir.

Whining and grinding when turning the wheels in a


The Power Steering Reservoir is foaming the fluid, causing the noise. Honda's solution is to replace the reservoir with a new one that does not foam the fluid. You can do the same by punching a hole in the screen at the bottom of the reservoir. Then idle the car for a moment or two and flush the fluid. WalMart PS fluid will work fine.

Whining noise from steering when turning steering wheel left or right even when parked with engine running


Check the level in the power steering fluid reservoir. You most likely need a top up. The noise is caused by the pump effectively pumping air through the system. Top up to the level marked in the reservoir then turn on the engine and move the steering wheel around for a wile then turn off an re top up to the level marked in the reservoir and all should then be OK. Make sure you use the correct fluid for the car – usually a Red Dexron Hydraulic Fluid.
