You need to use Honda power sterring fluid. It say so on the power sterring cap inside the hood. I would recommend Honda brake fluid as well to be sure.
You should use "Honda Power Steering Fluid" ONLY!
It should say right on the cap for the brake fluid. Usually DOT 3. Power steering should say as well, but there are plenty of multi compatible fluids.
PS should be 18000 miles and brake fluid about 30000 miles PS should be 18000 miles and brake fluid about 30000 miles
No. Brake fluid is not a petroleum product. Power steering fluid is. Petroleum product will swell and ruin rubber part's brake system is full of rubber parts. You will destroy your brake system using power steering fluid.
To refill the brake fluid for a 1992 Acura, you need to remove the cap on the brake fluid reservoir. Add fluid until the dipstick measures full, or the line on the reservoir that says 'full' is touched by the brake fluid.
The advisable solution is to have the power steering system flushed and recharged with fresh power steering fluid. Brake fluid does have solvent properties which may not be compatible with the seals and hoses of the power steering unit and the rack and pinion.
Use only Honda P/S fluid.
Your power steering will fail because brake fluid is poor lubricant.
Where d oyou poor the power steering fluid for 2000 acura tl
no, but if you have a auto transmission you can you can use that for power steering
At the power steering reservoir.
There should be a fill tank (small). It will look a little like a brake fluid or power steering filler. It uses brake fluid. Should be on the firewall near the brake booster or master cylinder. Y-THINK-Y
there's a reservoir tank under the hood the cap says power steering fluid which should be near the brake fluid reservoir
NO !! POWER STEERING FLUID IS SIMILAR TO TRANSMISSION FLUID... BRAKE FUILD IS LIKE NOTHING ELSE
NO ! ( My Ford Explorer uses automatic transmission fluid as the power steering fluid )
no, brake fluid is not the same as power steering fluid, make sure you actually get the right stuff. and double check what type of brake fluid you have (dot 3/ dot 5) because there is a difference there too
Then you should put water in your gas tank. Dont! Brake fluid works in place of power steering In a pinch. It's essentially just hydraulic fluid.
have a repair shop flush the system and refill with the proper fluid.
There is a technical classification for what type of oil it is, but if you are just looking to buy some for your car look for Honda Power Steering Fluid. Yes, Acura is made by Honda. You can always go to your dealership and get "Acura" fluid, but it really is just Honda fluid with a new Acura sticker on it. I wouldn't recommend any Honda or Acura dealership to get fluid from. They overcharge, so just go to a local auto parts store and look for "Honda Power Steering Fluid". Many companies make it.
facing engine (bonnet up) on right hand side near shock tower is BLACK reservoir with sensor wire in center of cap - this is power steering(white capped reservoir = brake )do not put brake fluid in power-steering or power-steering fluid in brake res. use power-steering fluid or auto trans fluid to top up
Both the power steering pump and the brake booster operate hydraulically. Putting brake fluid in the power steering pump will not harm it since brake fluid is a light oil only with different properties. I would only worry if it were the other way around and you put power steering fluid in the brake master cylinder. Power steering fluid doesn't have the heat range or density of brake fluid.
No, but transmission fluid can be used for power steering...
