2000 Honda Accord EX 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 137149 miles
I recently had my tension pulley and my alternator belt replaced. When I got my car back I drove off and when I turned the wheel it makes a loud rubbing noise!
Also when I checked the power steering resevoir it was bubbling out through the cap while the car was running like it was over heating. The mechanic said that I have air in my power steering line and I need to drive the car for a couple of days to get the air out. He also told me I also have a small leak in the power steering rack that may also be contributing to the air in the line. I have never had problems with the power steering before I brought my car to this shop. I want to know how air can get in your power steering line, how can it be fixed, and am I getting ripped off, or what really is wrong with my car?
Oh and before this place, I had gotten my alignment done. They said I had a p/s power leaking and rack leaking.
Please help Thank You!
final fix was tension pulley and alternator belt
I took my car to the shop to get the alternator fix and ask them to check my power steering cuz another place says we have p/s leaking and rack leaking and Ive never seen any leak coming out of the car in our drive way. My steering never made the noise when I dropped it off. So when I got it back that's when my car was making loud noise turning right and left turn and humming noise. He says theirs air in the power steering and it should go away as I drive it more. Is that true? Oh and if they say I have p/s pump leaking is that mean I need to replace the whole power steering or is it just hose? Please help!
have the same problem?
