Welcome fellow NYer. I am assuming you didn't get the recall done? I would add OEM PS fluid and just take it to the dealership as scheduled (assuming its for recall). Monitor the PS fluid level in the interim.
Work on that recall was completed. I was just at the dealership for service. They recommended replacing the power steering pump (FOR $834!!!) and the fluid.Welcome fellow NYer.

I am now having the same issue as OP. LA.3Six what was the resolution? I'm having the exact same whining sound and goes away after driving a while. Also, noticed the PS fluid is below the low line. I will go get some tomorrow from the dealer. Please let me know what you did. Thanks.
You're right. I got the power steering recall done 3 months ago.. I had to drive to the states buffalo. I must say the customer service is much better than up here. I just went today to my mechanic to do winter changeover and told him about the issue he checked underneath the car and said the whole rack leaking and its gonna cost $600 for a used part. He suggest just keep refilling PS fluid. The recall I noticed they changed the tube that goes over the engine, the old one was rubber I think nee one is covered with something silver.Check the boots on the steering rack, one is likely leaking and full of fluid. There is a service bulletin on it as the seals in the rack suck. Most dealers will replace the rack completely to the tune of $1600 US. But acura split the cost with me out of warranty.
