The P/S pump in my neighbor's 2010 Accord (111K) has become audible.

I've always heard to use Honda P/S fluid in Hondas. I'm OK with that but is there a "known & trusted" substitute?

I suppose the simplest route is the one to take first so I will get some Honda fluid.

My 06 started making some noise. Dumped all the PS fluid out and put new fresh fluid in, quiet it back down nicely.

I'm using Maxlife ATF on my 97 civic. No issues. Guess I'm taking chances not running Genuine Honda PS fluid.

You haven't paid attention to Kira's posts, have you? She maintains many friends' cars.

I turkey baste with every oil change. Use Prestone p/s fluid for Hondas. Never a problem. Bought it at Walmart.

Only Honda’s power steering fluid is the right viscosity, of all the ‘recommended’ ones I’ve seen.

Try replacing the fluid. If that doesn’t work, many Hondas eventually need an o-ring replaced which allows air in and cavitation to start, which makes noise.

Idemitsu PSF is good. Napa has it at a good price.

Otherwise, any aftermarket PS that says Honda on the bottle. If you're near an O'Reilly, they have house brand Honda PS by the quart

Very Common problem..its probably the o-ring. Part number 91345-R70-A11

O-ring fails on the intake side..sucks air.

Yep, I wouldn't think twice. Replace the O-ring and refill with Honda fluid.

10mm bolt, put some rags under it to catch some spillage. I4 or V6 should be equally as easy and take less than 10 min start to finish.

Maybe one day I'll live on the edge and get a Honda and use regular PS fluid in it and see what happens. smile
