  1. The 7th Generation
    Hi all, I have a 2007 Honda Accord ex L and I need some help, I have replaced my power steering pump 3x and o rings, and did a power steering flush, still making terrible noises. any guesses as to why?? The dealership is telling me it’s because they are after market pumps.....but I just refuse...

    Has anyone had experience with installing one of these Power Steering Pump Flow Control Fittings - Free Shipping on Orders Over $99 at Summit Racing on their 2012 or earlier(conventional hydraulic power steering) Honda Accords? it's a 'flow control' valve that installs in line with the power...

    have a 2008 V6 with ~230k miles on it. For as long as I can remember (I've had the car since it was at 90k) the power steering has been really bad, especially when I'm stopped. There is no fluid leaking from the pump and the fluid is clean and at the correct level. At this point I'm considering...

    Recently, I noticed an oil spill on the left side of the engine (direction: front; looking at the engine). I also took some pictures of the oil leak. It's definitely not engine oil. I think this is coming from the power steering. Besides, I see some leakage from the PCV valve as well, which was...
  5. Wheels, Suspension & Brakes
    Looking to firm up my 2010 EX' steering, wonder if something of this ilk would be compatible with the pumps in our generation Accords.

    So I was getting a slight vibration coming off the belt drive and noticed the power steering pump had a little play left to right and could hear a slight noise when I would spin the tensioner pulley. I replaced both, used a cardone remanufactured power steering pump and new tensioner. After...

    Had a small wreck with an 06 Accord. Suddenly the power steering is not working. Pump is making high growl noises. Can't see any kinked hoses. No leaks. Just stopped working as soon as it happened. Drove the car home slowly and parked it until I figure it out. Any ideas? Is there a safety valve...

    So I have a 2004 accord lx, in-line 4 sedan. So this morning the power steering pump start making the typical whine/groan that everyone has discussed. I’ve replaced the o ring before about a month or two ago so this is what concerns me really. Would the o ring go bad again in that short a time...

    Hi All, Saw a 2005 Accord EXL V6 (two owners) with 180K miles. Have attached the repair estimates below after doing a used car inspection from my local car mechanic. It has an accident. No check engine lights and the engine seems to be fine when driving. 1) Front bumper has scrapes and damage...

    Hello all, Decided to make a post because I've searched all over the internet and have not found an answer. Recently my 2014 honda accord LX has been plagued with the Christmas light syndrome on dash including ABS, VSA, Power Steering, and TPMS as once. I had a mechanic installed HID...

    Greetings everyone, There are plenty of resources out there on the 6 Cylinder, but not finding much on changing power steering pressure line for 4 Cylinder on 7th Generation. So my 2007 Accord EX has about 195k and I do have a leak in the pressure line in the hard line, where it begins to...

    I recently bought a used 2007 Honda Accord EX-L V6 and the power steering feels a little sluggish. It doesn't make any noise and it's certainly easier to turn the wheel than without power steering but having owned 3 other Hondas, I know the steering is more difficult to turn than it should be...

    Hello Accord Fam, I bought a salvage 2008 Honda Accord 3 years ago and since California has been in a drought there hasn't been much rain. Long story short, my wipers stop working at random times when driving in the rain. Sometimes for a few seconds, minutes and one time for a few days. Also...

    While looking around under the hood a few weeks ago, I noticed this wet area down on the splash shield just behind the passenger side headlight. After a little investigation, I learned it was one of the short hoses on the power steering return line (#12 in the illustration below). At first, I...

    Here's a sobering thought from Bloomberg about the NHTSA probe into Accord power steering failures. A small number of 07 Honda Fit cars also had electric power steering issues resulting in one fatal accident. Owners of the Fits that had this issue said that when they got the car stopped, turning...

    I turned my car on today and all the dash lights stayed on and I have no power steering, I'm taking it back to the dealer but what could be the problem?? Can I do a hard reset myself??
  17. Honda Accord Recalls (All models)
    Does anyone know if we still have to get the Power Steering Recall done at a dealer, or should independent shops be capable of doing this job now, or better yet is this something we can DIY if we get the part? Thanks:dunno:

    I recently took my car to the shop to get an inspection and after leaving, I noticed that something was leaking from under the car. The next day, I when I turn the car on and let it run for a little a white smoke comes from the engine ( front left if you're looking at the car) that smells like...

    I bought this 2 door accord 6-cyl. from a cheap used car lot out of Houston. The guy fixed the problems i found before i bought it. Check engine light still came on After i left, whatever. My question is: the power steering pump moans and wines, even when warm, and it sounds like there's sand in...

    This is my first time ever changing the power steering fluid on any car. So first I will refer you to this DIY video. Watch the video and make sure you have all the necessary tools before you begin. 123,000 Miles I was unsatisfied with the heavy feel of the V6's power steering. It felt too...
