Mac54, sorry for hijacking the thread on related issue "what the best way of changing ATF on modern PAS systems ?" , Vac pump whilst engine is running but would that ruin the pump?, and would there be bleed/air lock problems?, Any constructive input would be welcomed. Thanks Smiley Smiley

we have trouble with 2007 model year mondeo the fluid gets contaminated by the rack and in worse case pump/rack/and reservoir require replacement.

ford require the system to be flushed before parts replaced so to do this we pull off return from reservoir and run engine and flush 4/5 litres though system of course not allowing to ''run dry'' while doing so.

I just had a look at a 2005 Accord and the stuff in the power steering reservoir looks dark red. I would have assumed that it was ordinary Dexron 11 or 111.

You're right! I just did a quick check on Google and found no equivelant. A moment's thought will tell that Honda do not make steering fluid, they just put their name on someone else's bottle. If someone wants to convince me otherwise they will have to give me the address of the Honda oil refinery.

Is there any specification or standard on the label that would give us a clue? Even a part number in Google could throw up a result.

No help I'm afraid, it's on the American site and they don't deliver to Europe.
