Q: Steering problems with car.

asked by on

I am having trouble steering my car.

Honda has extended the warranty on the power steering pump on these vehicles to 7 year or 100,000 miles. The power steering pumps do not provide enough pressure to the steering system during low speeds. Your vehicle is over the 7 years old but this should help in diagnosis of the problem you are having. I would recommend having a mechanic, like the certified ones at YourMechanic, come and check it out for you and see if the pump is the cause. If it is then I would recommend the replacement pump to be of the newer higher pressure pump.
