I have a 2004 Honda Accord. It is foaming orange stuff. The fluid should be clear?? Took it to a shop, they flushed the system, said they had to do it 3 times, said there were no leaks in the lines and the pump was working fine. Said they got most of the orange stuff out, but theres still a tinge of it, but its mostly clear again. Felt better driving it after the flush. Started it up this morning, made the same whining noise as before, worse when you move wheel back and forth. Looked in the reservior, orange and foaming again. Sigh. Any ideas??
I had the same after I flushed it myself. The Honda dealer told me that I need a new pump which I could not believe. It worked fine before I changed the fluid.
I noticed that the level in the reservoir is below the return line. I think that the air must come in due to that. I added more fluid and let it stand over night to allow the foam to turn into liquid again. Before I turned on the engine I turned the wheels about 5 time left to right. Some air bubbles came out. After that everything works fine.
