Power steering kicks off going up or down hill Sign In

Power steering issue on a 2008 Honda Odyssey with 130k miles

Hi! Weird problem — my power steering kicks out when going up or down hill. The pump started making weird noises typical of a failing pump. I had it replaced with a new one. No more noises. It seemed fine. A month or so later, we were driving in the mountains and it kept kicking off, when we were going up or down. It doesn’t seem to happen on small grades. I brought it back to mechanic who warrantied it out and replaced it again about a week ago. Today driving up a steep hill, it kicked off again... the mechanic seemed puzzled last time this happened. I doubt he’ll have any ideas this time.

Any help would be appreciated!!! Thanks!

Not Sure if will apply to your concern but worth a look see

Look into the Reservoir per this Service Bulletin from Honda

Check to see if its been replaced per the instructions in the bulletin. If not, Put one on. and Remember to use Honda Power Steering Fluid only
I know its states in certain temps only but let the mechanic know in case this applies

Service Bulletin 07-005
