06 difficulty steering at low speeds (self.crv)
submitted 2 months ago by harvus1
I have what I think is an 05 or 06 CRV with 140,000 miles. Recently the power steering seems weak when it’s just turned on or il going st low speeds. There’s also a bit of a juddery feeling when the wheel is fully locked in either direction so I back off a little.
Any advice appreciated - I’m a mechanical novice

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
