The new power steering pump I just installed does not work.

Asked by Nov 26, 2014 at 08:33 PM about the 2006 Honda Accord

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just installed a new PS pump in my 2006 Honda Accord without a glitch.  Before I
started the engine I made sure the PS fluid reservoir was slightly overfilled (With Honda
PS fluid) to compensate for the new pump.  I started the car, checked the fluid level, it
never moved -- I immediately shut the engine off.  Engine run time --- 15 secs.  If the
pump isn't picking up the oil from the reservoir.  Whats my next move?

Just off the top of my head, I think you're supposed to crank the steering wheel all the way to the left and then the right and that should force the air out

Thanks for the response and info.
