Without the power steering system, the wheels of your Acura would be much harder to turn, especially when the vehicle is not moving. Fortunately, the use of the Acura power steering pump makes the job of steering easier. It is connected to the engine's crankshaft pulley with a belt, which is what provides the power to the unit. When the engine is running and the steering wheel is turned, the Acura power steering pump aids the driver by developing hydraulic pressure and adding it to the force of the driver input. Within the Acura power steering pump is a series of seals that contain the pressure, as well as valves that direct the pressure to the appropriate hoses. When the power steering is not working well, and the fluid level is sufficient, it is likely that the seals or valves may have started leaking within the Acura power steering pump. If that is the case, the unit will have to be replaced, and you will find the correct version for most vehicles in our large online catalog, at a price that is much lower than what the dealership would charge for a similar replacement. Our Acura power steering pump is manufactured to the same standards as the dealership's part, so it will be a direct replacement, and it has a full warranty from the manufacturer. To install the Acura power steering pump, the belt leading to the old part must be removed, and the old unit can be replaced with the new one. After the installation is complete, the reservoir will have to be filled, and then the system will have to be bled, according to the procedure described in the repair manual. When you are ready to order the Acura power steering pump, you can do so through our secure online ordering process or by phone, with a toll-free call.
