Taking off power steering

Ok any ideas I found this web site but it’s for 5 gens do u guys know if it is the same for my 93 SI v-Tec. and I do not understand I have 4 hard-lines one is to the power steering pump another is to the reservoir and the other two are for the cooler lines. What I don't understand is what line to cut (coolers or reservoir) and what line to connect. Hey if any one body knows please tell me. Or if u got a better understanding. I will really appreciate. Thank You.

Hires the web site

Thats the exact link I used to remove my Power Steering.
(I own a 93 SiVTEC as well)

It was kinda confusing at first but, I got through it.

The steering column valve body is a little different on the 5th gen than it is on a 4th gen.

My advice is to look and make sure you follow all the lines to see where they head.
Once you completely understand of where the lines go, and how the liquid flows, it will become much easier of how to loop the lines.

It took me all day to do this because I didn't understand the right up that clearly. Eventually I just ditched it and figured it out on my own.

Its 2am now but tomorrow Ill look and see what specific lines I had cut, ill probably take some pics for you too.

Just sit tight.

Ok. since we have the exact same model Prelude, yours should look exactly like mine.

1) Car. (removed oil cooler on the condenser)


2) Valve.


3) Lines to cut/loop.


4) Remove pump, reservoir, extra lines, and cooler.


Have more pictures. If you are still confused. Ask me.

That is correct.
Once you remove the pump, the whole hard line to the pump gets removed.

You have to insert that little attachment from the H-T link.


into the pump line.



Then the reservoir hard line turns into a rubber hose.

Cut the hose as soon as it turns into rubber.
Then re-route it to the Pump attachment piece.

No. you remove it.

If I remember correctly, I think the cooler ran to the reservoir, like in series in the line.

I think those 2 other lines that you labeled cooler actually never go to the cooler.


It was a while ago but I think those lines actually go to the laft side of the engine bay. Away from the P/S system.
Ill take a look again tomorrow.

I just left them untouched.

Try to follow the lines and see where they go.

Ok.

I cant remember that well. It was a while ago, and I forgot how the system looked.

But. I...

1. Removed the pump.
2. Removed the cooler. (should be somehow connected to the reservoir)(I think)
3. Removed the reservoir.

Take the remaining hose.
that comes from the valve.




Then.

Cut it.


And connect it to where the pump line was. (with the attachment u bought)




Ok.

Now these two links will be connected.



This should be all the info you need to completely remove the power steering system and loop the lines.
If you are still stuck. Take a picture of where your stuck and I can help you from there.

Well actually I finish it early this morning.
I remove every. And the reservoir is the one that connects to the other two lines going towards the other side of the engine. And the cooler is the one we pointed out as the reservoir.
This how it is.



Then I just connected those two (pump and Cooler). For the reservoir I hade to takeoff the "T" connecting and just run that one connection strait to the engine. (Or where ever dose two little lines go to.)

thats what i did.
well thanks for all ur help.

Mis-understood.

Maybe straight on the dyno it will show no power gain or very little.
(But power steering works when you are turning if you think about it)

Go test it.

Go start you car.
And turn the steering wheel back and forth. (at least a full turn)

You will see you idle drop a bit. Thus the P/S sucking up some power.

Now, to my knowlege the more steering stress = motor power the p/s sucks up from the motor.

And ofcourse there is more stress while moving, rather that sitting still.

So you will see more power gains while turning (like on a mountain or windy road)

Now if all you do is race in a straight line, or baby your motor everywhere.
I think this would be kinda pointless

Thats why a Dyno wont pick up ****.

good point.
well even so. I like my effort less turning under 5mph. lol.
I'm sure my 4ws wouldn't be as fun without p/s.

Re: Taking off power steering

that hard line on the right side of the valve goes to the cooler, and the only line off the reservoir that doesn't go to the cooler or pump goes to the left side of the engine bay, this doesn't make sense can someone clarify.

Re: Taking off power steering

what the heck do i do with the cooler line!!! i take it you mean the reservoir hose that goes to the other side of the engine you attach to the valve and then the cooler line coming off the valve goes to the cooler, durr, but the flipping coolers being taken out that's what i don't get!!!

Re: Taking off power steering

f you all i figured it out
the cooler has one line going to the egr that turns into a "T" the other line going to the valve, and other line of the cooler goes to the reservoir.
the reservoir has three lines, one to the cooler, one to the pump, and one to the valve
the pump has a line to the reservoir and the other to the valve.
and the last line off the valve goes to the egr.
