When you make turns or even slight course corrections in your lane, your 2007 Honda Accord power steering pump multiplies the amount of effort you put into the steering to minimize the strength required to control your car. If you're finding it difficult to stay on course, it could be faulty power steering. Fortunately, changing the pump is often all it takes to restore safe handling.

What Do Power Steering Pumps Do?
The power steering pump in Honda Accord 2007 models is hydraulic, meaning it creates fluid pressure. The power steering gear, or rack and pinion, uses the pressurized fluid to reduce the amount of steering effort required to turn the steering wheel. The purpose of the pump itself is simply to supply a constant flow of high-pressure fluid to the steering gear. Fluid from the power steering fluid reservoir is pushed from the pump to the rack and pinion through a pressure hose and then cycles back through a return hose.
Signs of Failing Power Steering Pump
The power steering pump for 2007 Honda Accord models circulates fluid whenever the engine is running. Eventually, wear and tear can contribute to failure, and poor fluid condition will accelerate it. Symptoms of a bad power steering pump include whining or growling under the hood at idle or when turning, choppy steering when you turn, or a lack of assist when you're trying to turn the steering wheel. A fluid leak is also possible at the pump shaft.
Power Steering Pump Replacement Cost
For a novice or experienced DIYer, a power steering pump replacement will take around an hour or so, and the air must be bled from the system afterwards. The pump itself varies in price depending on the part you choose, ranging from around $100 to $240.
