Be sure to get PS fluid that states that it is compatible Honda PS fluid. You can get it at any autoparts store. The problem you are having usually means that the fluid is low but might be the PS pump or the PS rack. If it is a leak you need to find it and nip it in the bud before it causes damage to others stated above.

Dude I don't mean to sound like a dick and all.. But for real? This question is coming from someone giving advice to others on how to fix cars?

(its the master cylinder, change it and be done) << You said this to someone losing clutch pressure..

(haha this is a funny thread. i have a stock cb7 and a jdm h22a cd5, and man the difference is like day n night. lets just say its like putting a itr motor into a civic. running 14's while getting 27+... ) << Really You don't know where the power steering fluid goes but knows whats it like running 14's in a swapped civic?

Again not trying to come off as a dick, but you should really not give advice to others on car repair if you are unable to pop your own hood and check fluid levels.. I mean come on dude!

But to answer your question, pop the hood, look to the right of the block and you will see a cap that says power steering.. Twist that off and check the level on the stick.

More then likely PS fluid is low man. Like scud said. Follow the lines and source out your leak. Fix it before it becomes a huge problem and messes with your rack.

If all fluid are ok maybe you have same problem i have get before... your power steering is broken. also look the strap it may be have play if play change it. Personally i have change power steering & Strap and now work fine. i don't have spent lot of money i have grab from a junkyard for only couple of bucks.
Try with new strap if problem still here, its probably power steering the problem.

first of all.. and i dont mean to sound like a dick.. which i am going to sound like. you need to shut the f up because all the other shit i was talkin about has nothing to do with ps.. i dont have ps in my other accord so i wouldnt know where to begin and there is no leaks. ive never dealt with power steering. so instead of comin on my thread to start shit why dont u just help and stop being a dumbass? thanks to all the other people.. but this guy can f off and i mean that from the bottom of my heart.

Sorry you got all but hurt, I did in fact tell you how to check if the ps fluid was low.. But yes when a noob comes in asking where to check the ps fluid that tells me right off the bat that you didn't bother to take the time and look under your own hood. You will find the people here are very helpful to those that at least try to help them self's.. Helping and spoon feeding are two very different things. Next time don't be so obvious trying to up your post count. And if you did pop the hood and looked around and still didn't find where the steering fluid goes, Well that's a completely different story...
