The voltage readings sound fairly normal to me. Also, since you don't get fluctuating voltages depending on RPM, I would suspect the voltage regulator is also good. I would check elsewhere. Electrical short maybe, or failing electric steering box, or ECU?

I had a 1990 Honda Accord that had a very similar problem. It would often make a squealing/whirring noise when turning at intersections. The noise sounded like it was coming from the other side of the dashboard, near the power steering components. I finally checked, and the power steering fluid was low. Filled it up to the correct level with the proper ...

I'd suggest the following tests: Firstly, with the car stationary, try to turn the steering wheel gently while an assistant watches the road wheels - if you can turn the wheel some distance before the roadwheels start to move, you've got something loose in the steering mechanism. If this is the case you should also feel that the first part of the movement ...

It shouldn't go low. However, with a new rack, it may still be working some of the air out of the system, so it might be a little low after things get right. Overall, though, the power steering system is a closed system, meaning it shouldn't lose fluid over time unless there is a leak. Ensure when you're looking at the fluid, you follow the manufactures' ...

This happened to my 2007 Honda Pilot, The reservoir has a filter in the bottom that was semi plugged. I cleaned that mess filter and new fluid fixed mine.

Upon recommendation from a professional mechanic, I used a power steering fluid additive made by Lucas which got the air out and solved the noise problem almost instantly.

The crew of the series Mythbusters did just as you've described, replacing the steering wheel with a geared servo motor controlled by radio control, along with throttle management. The brake pedal was also handled by geared servos. The need for this was to be able to destroy the rear axle of a vehicle without endangering a human operator. A quick google ...

I've found that a "strap wrench" is useful in cases like this.

Put a long screwdriver through one of the holes in the pulley. Brace the blade end of it against the body of the pump. Place it in a way so the pulley won't move. Ensure the end isn't against something which will break (like something plastic). Then tighten the nut. There really isn't (to my knowledge) any real "tool" to get this done. You just have to wing ...

Sounds like sucking air because of a low oil level. That is consistent with it going away when oil is added , and coming back when oil leaks out.

I had forgotten about this for some time. I've been driving with a functioning speedo for some time now. Simply replaced the ABS sensor and got my speedo back. As a bonus I also got my power steering functioning properly.
