no, the intermediate steering shaft is completely independent of the Power Steering fluid operation. Make sure that when you remove the shaft, you DO NOT move the steering wheel. The clockspring inside the wheel is very easily damaged.

no, I don't see why.

What is required maintenance at 120000 for 2004 Honda Accord?

If it is a V6 at 110,000 miles the cam belt and water pump should have been changed. This is an interference engine. If the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur. If you have not had the belt replaced STOP driving the car until you can get this done. The belt can break at any moment. On a V6 & 4 cylinder, you also need to have the transmission fluid, brake fluid, and power steering fluid changed. The coolant needs replacing and thermostat needs replacing. Spark plugs and plug wires need replacing. Air & cabin filter need replacing every 30,000 miles. All suspension and steering parts need inspected and replaced as necessary. More than likely the struts need replacing. The exhaust system should be inspected. Of course the brake system should be inspected and repaired if necessary.
