PS Fluid

Have a 92S(189K)that to the best of my knowledge has never had the PS fluid changed.

Can I just drain\siphon\remove the fluid that's in there now and replace with newer stuff. Do I need to get all of the old out of the lines as well or can I just remove what's in the reservoir.
Should I use genuie Honda brand? or is anything ok

Steering is not causing me any problem-just thinking it likely should be changed

Re: PS Fluid

your best bet is to find a shop that does bg flushes. last i saw it cost 89 with parts. its the best form of a power steering flush machine that ive ever used. what is involved is emptying the reservoir and replacing that fluid with cleaner. you let the vehicle run and turn the steering wheel from lock to lock to let the cleaner circulate throughout the lines, rack and pump. then replace the cleaner with fluid.

to answer your questions yes you can use honda ps fluid, or you can use the stuff from autozone. but do a flush, otherwise you wasted new fluid.

For those who may find later.
If you get the stuff from a local parts store-MAKE sure to get "FOR HONDA" fluid. May have to ask for it.
Read the bottles, most will say not for honda.


I got the right stuff but my pump doesn't like it I don't think-it's suddenly noisey as he!!-kinda a constant drone with a thunk thunk in it :(

Re: PS Fluid

BEst wy to do it at how goes about like this

1.Take off the return line that goes in to the pump and cap the hole.
2.run a line over the return line and into a bucket.
have some one crank the car as you porn new PS fluid in the pump till new lookign fluid comes out the other end.
3.cut off the car wipe down w/e needs to and attach the line.

Basically what i did, following the instructions from the service manual.

Disconnected the top hose from the reservoir-it goes to the cooler I believe
I just let it drain into the engine well(hosed down with water hose after completing)
Cranked the car
turned well to left and right, several times
waited for old fluid to squirt out
reattached the hose and refilled the system

Don't guess there's any way to really bleed the system-just fill and go

Just make sure to get PS fluid made for Honda
