I noticed the maintenance manual doesn't say anything about changing the PS fluid, so I was wondering if it ever needed to be changed, and if so, at what interval.

If I do the change via the turkey baster method, how many 12 Oz bottles of the Honda fluids would be necessary?

Also, I was planning on having a brake flush done soon and was wondering how many 12 Oz bottles of the Honda brake fluid was needed. I tried searching around for the capacities, but only found info for the 6th gen.

Thanks!

Yes, change them every 2-3 years regardless of miles.

Brake fluid change
Member "rookie" excellent write-up: http://www.driveaccord.net/forums/sh...+fluid+7th+gen
(did you see Moderator/Member "sodaks2K" note about the order in which you bleed the brakes? You should!)


Honda's power steering fluid is part number 08206-9002A I usually use 2 bottles to accomplish a complete change of fluid.
Honda's brake fluid is part number 08798-9008A I usually use 2 bottles to accomplish a complete brake fluid "bleed".

So you just bought a 7th Gen....http://www.driveaccord.net/forums/showthread.php?t=145746

Thanks! I'll check that sticky next time. My Accord has been dealer serviced for most of its life, and since they would follow the Honda recommendations I doubt the PS fluid has been changed yet (since it's not on Honda's list of things to change at regular maintenance intervals).

No chance of getting air into the PS system by using the turkey baster method, right?

LOL, Rick. You're certifiable, man. OP, whatever you prefer, but I'd sooner pour directly from the canister directly into a cup than fuss with turkey basters. Besides, you'll need that baster next week. :D
