Over time of driving and usage, the most part that we’ve encounter are the power steering leaking problem. The leaking on the power steering system are vary from each car models and types. For this post, we received En. Amey Honda City 1.5 2001 car with the power steering leaking problem.

Initial checking, we found out that the most leakage area are at the power steering main housing rack that were bolt on to the car cross member. Most of the case are due to un-proper hose tighten and possible of hose leakage. Apart from the main housing of the power steering rack leaking spotted, we found out the main power steering fluid reservoir were having some leakage spotted.

Treatment

For this kind of situation, the treatment are usually called for power steering overhauling and all the seals, ‘O’ ring, bushing, need to be replace. Started by removing the steering coupling underneath the drive side steering console. Next, we need to clear up all the hoses and bushing that wrap around the steering rack housing.

Removing the fluid steel hose need for a special spanner. Else, you will risk of getting the heaxgon nut loose. KS TOOLS Flexi-Head Brake Bleeding Flare Nut Spanner Set is the example of the special spanner that we are talking about. The Workshop Warehouse are selling it with the spec of Chrome plated, mirror polished. Flexible 230° angle head.

      Power steering pump atau power steering rack yang bocor tuh? Jika rack yang bocor, kita kena kuar kan seketul dan tukar kesemua Oil Seal dan jugak O ring yang terdapat pada rack tersebut. Jika Pump yang leaking, kaedah yang sama juga kita guna. Kedua-dua nya perlu di teliti sejauh mana kebocoran serta kerosakkan tersebut. Untuk Power Steering Pump bagi Honda City, jika teruk..disarankan tukar yang baru (2nd/Brand New).

      Anggaran kasar jika pump tukar baru sekitar RM3++.. Sekadar anggaran sahaja 🙂

      Untuk masalah berikut, jika kebocoran di tahap kritikal, kami nasihat kan agar saudara leo buat ‘re-conditioning’ steering rack tersebut.

    May I know how much do you sell a full set of power steering rack for Honda City Type Z 1.5L Year 2001?
    The existing power steering rack is leaking. Is it necessary to change the whole set or just a service / repair is enough? May I have your phone number and address of your workshop, in case I would like to bring my car to you? Thank you.

      Hi Danny. If your steering rack is still an OEM parts and the leaking point is still repairable, then you might as well get it repair. If your steering rack having a bad leaking and has undergone a repair job previously, I would advice you to get a re-cond set instead. Getting a new OEM parts, might cost you a thousand over while re-cond set (life span up to 5years) cost you around RM650 to RM800.
