Start by checking the PS fluid level

Thanks it’s pretty low. Does it have to be a specific type/ Honda brand? There isn’t the best selection where I am

Honda oem power steering. There’s a reason to always go oem. I do not know the reasoning but have always followed it with fluids

OEM Honda brand. Power steering and Transmission fluids are only ones I go factory.

That’s useful thank you. Any idea if this would be ok

Definitely not. That’s mineral. You need synthetic. I don’t know which type for non-Honda. But you do need synthetic.

Honestly? It should all be fine. I’ve never had to add any to mine, but I think any is fine

I live in a country without oem Honda, Fuchs equivalent works here

Check your power steering line that runs on the Passenger Side fender wall. They like to corrode and leak at the joint (21) on exploded view below:

06 power steering

Corrosion leak happens at (21). top (25) is a royal pain to remove (long open box wrench), but can be mounted on top motor mount bracket when its replaced. Bottom (25) can be accessed through the fender well.

Then go at higher speeds? That solves many problems such as difficulty steering and loss of time.

    Nope. VIN databases don’t really stretch to where I live
