Default RE: power steering leak

it would be really nice if you would let us know the year and model...........

Anyho.. you got a leak in your system, and it is sucking air , thus it is foaming up , it will fill the reservoir with air , which it will foam up and make look like you got too much fluid,,
Most p/s system on hondas .leak at the pump frt seal, or the p/s rack .
You need to have it checked out..

unless you overfilled the p/s reservoir,, or turn the wheels while car was not running ,( if you turn the wheels while car is not running, the fluid wil raise in the reservoir and spill from the top cover ) , you got a leak in the system..
Most common p/s pump frt seal, or p/s rack,,, high pressure hoses used to be a big issue till 89, starting in 90, very very rare,, although it still could leak as well..

ORIGINAL: CRWJumper

I just got back from the dealer, and he said that the PS rack on my 2003 Accord EX v6 was leaking. He showed me the fluid under the car on the boot (cover) under the drivers side, and recommended that I replace the PS rack. $1500!!

I am more inclined to just top off the PS fluid from time to time instead of pouring so much money into it at this point.

Is this a safe thing to do? Could other problems arise from this leak?

There is no PS fluid on my garage floor. The mechanic/advisor told me that it probably only leaks when I'm turning. I wasn't sure if I trusted him.
Any advice would be greatly appreaciaed.

Thanks!
how many miles ?? 03 is still under warranty if less than 36k.. and even if you have more.. it should not leak at such low miles,,, I would talk to the Honda distyrict manager get the phone # from the dealer and ask that they should fix it for free ..
