Steering pump noise and fix

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to share my recent experience with you all and hope this can help someone else.

I started hearing a whining noise in the morning when my car was cold. Took it to the dealership and they said I need a new power steering pump at a cost of $900. I decided to wait a while since I didn't want to pay that much and didn't think it was urgent.

Then the noise got a little worse and it was annoying every morning when I started my commute. Couple of weeks ago, I was at another dealership getting an alignment and decided to google accord steering pump noise issue. Then I saw a youtube video of this nice person showing on his Pilot how he fixed the problem by simply replacing an O ring seal. I thought, what the hell, I might as well try it.

So I told the dealer to replace the O ring for me. He said there were 2 O rings, one at the top and one at the bottom. The parts were only couple of bucks but he wanted to charge me for 30 minutes of labor. I said OK thinking I'm taking a chance.

Even the service adviser agreed with me that most often it's the worn out O ring that causes these noise issue as air is being sucked in.

Guess what? It's been 2 weeks and the noise is completely gone! I can't thank the Youtuber enough for saving me over $800. I would've have spent the money to get rid of the annoying noise eventually.

So, the moral of the story is don't replace or rebuild your power steering pump before first replacing the O rings to see if that fixes your problem.

It pays to stay ahead of dealerships. Good job dude, they customarily replace and not fix.

Yeah I'm glad I didn't pad their pockets.

I hope more people realize how to beat the dealerships.
