Did it leak and run low?

Fill it if low but I might suck out what I could, try new fluid just there and see if it corrects or stays, move on to pressure testing and hope but would think that's will be a failed pump,

Did you use Honda specific fluid in it? Make sure you did.

You can shut it off and let all the air rise to the top and then top off the fluid. If it happens again, it has to be sucking air in the line between the reservoir and the pump.
