      Several possibilities; worn / faulty wheel bearing, worn / faulty wheel hub assembly, worn / faulty suspension bushing, worn / faulty CV joint and halfshaft assembly.
      Check the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for the steps to inspect and replace the front suspension and driveline components. Try these websites; www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts.

      Expense is relative / variable term. For some, just the parts alone may be 'expensive'. Anyway, the specific cost can only be determined once the exact cause of the fluid leak is known. Try the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for the steps to check the steering system for leaks.

      It depends on where / what the source of the fluid leak is; power steering hose, power steering pump, steering rack and pinion - just a few examples. Try the many on-line auto parts sources; such as - www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts.

      Hello
      If you did not use power steering fluid from Honda /Acura it can quickly ruin seals in the steering rack. You will want to see if the steering rack end boots are filling up with fluid to determine if there is a leak there.
      Hope this helps you.

    How do you know when to replace motor mounts/
     
    • Jimm
      12/3/2012 Jimm
      The motor mounts need replacing when the motor (engine) shifts under load - usually during acceleration. They are not difficult to replace; try the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for the specific steps.

    Power Steering makes loud noise and steering is difficult and intermittent when engine is cold.
    No visible leaks and fluid is between Max and Min. Fluid appears dark with very fine black residue in it. Symptom goes away when engine heats up.

    What is causing such a rough ride?
    Recently replaced struts on all four wheels...Monroe after market, not Acura, and the car still rides like a truck. Bumps and rough spots in the road seem to be amplified rather that absorbed. Both the Acura dealer and the independent shop where I had the work ...

    Would having a new rack and pinion installed cause my car to jerk when turning and accelerating from a stand still?
    New rack and pinion installed and now when I turn wheel all the way to one side and accelerate ( ex: reverse from a parking spot then turn wheel all the way and accelerate to leave), my car jerks until I straighten wheel back out.

      Was an alignment performed after the steering rack was replaced? This could possibly be causing the issue on sharp turns if the alignment is way out of adjustment. Hope this helps

      Yeah this morning actually. I read that alot of 3rd gen TLs that have power steering pump issues and have to have them replaced or something. I'm hoping if it it's covered by Acura care warranty

      I have the same problem with 2007 mdx and I've had the system flushed many times, replaced the pump and just Thursday replaced the rack and still have the noise! I'm absolutely livid! I contacted Acura and they're no help at all! It's not under warranty so this all has come out of my pocket!

      I called them too but I got a different story and after replacing everything the noise was still there and big money spent. We now have a Nissan Murano LE! Also, if you don't have all the work done at Acura Dealership for example ours was done by my husband and our Honda Dealership Acura won't back it up, even if it was all Acura parts and you're a certified Acura Mechanic. Good luck everyone, I have owned 4 Hondas and my Acura MDX, and I was very disappointed that they didn't recall this issue!

    My steering wheel shakes. It shakes worse as I get up to 40mph or more. My wheel also feels like its shaking. (Front)
    Why would or what would cause my steering wheel to shake??

      If it only shakes while driving, you have a tire problem. Most more than likely you have a tire balance problem, but there is always a chance one of the tires could be separated. But usually a separated tire will cause the entire car to wobble at low speeds, such as while driving in a parking lot.
