Hi Wendell,

You might try replacing the outlet o-ring atop your power steering unit. After awhile they tend to harden a little and let air through causing some whining. I'm not sure what the part number is but there are a few threads about replacing the o-ring. There was even a recall for it.

It wouldn't hurt to replace your fluid as well if it's contaminated and the serpentine belt if it's glazed or has cracked ribs.

Thanks for the reply it's my first on a forum and hope that I have questioned properly ,anyways I did learn that only brand specific (honda acura) ps oil is what you use. My oil was dark probably original oil so I flushed 3 times and my steering is quite now but still dark after 3 flushes I still have a couple of bottles left and will do it more . in a couple of days I really hope that it will turn clear and stay clear after a couple more flushes . or will it always be dark even when I put new fluid in ?

It shouldn't be dark if you did an actual full flush. I remember doing partial flushes initially (replacing fluid only in the reservoir) and having to flush it at least 4 times. The next flush, a few years later, I did an actual full flush. I continously poured fluid into the reservoir and let it exit from the return line into another container. Only then was it truly pure.

I bought 8 bottles of acura p.s. fluid and I have 4 left I wasn't quite sure.. I guess I'll buy 3 more and flush till I run out hopefully it will go clear . it is running properly and with no issues .no more whining. I wasnt quit sure but it seems that it can only hold about 2 3/4 b bottles.
