    Default Civic 8gen Hard Steering

    Guys i have a little hard steering in my 8gen, little more force is required to move the steering as compared to other cars.

    few facts :
    Power steering fluid changed twice - using OEM honda PS fluid
    Power steering fluid level is not decreasing.
    condition & color of fluid is still in original condition.

    PS pump is not making any sound.

    Tires are bridgestone 390B which used to come stock in 2008 model 33k kms life covered.

    Now pls tell me what are the things which i need to get inspected, i dont want to goto honda because there only solution to this problem is PS pump replacement which i personally dont think is the issue.

    would appreciate if you guys could highlight the settings in the PS rack or any other thing which is effecting the performance of PS.

    no bro there is no leak in the system the oil levels remains at optimal level and condition of the oil is also not contaminated. i think there is some resistance or some other issue in the steering rack.

    I don't think there is anything wrong with your cars' steering. My bro just got 2012 8th gen civic. He had a 2011 Altis earlier. and the first thing he noticd was the hard steering as compared to Altis. I think it's just how 8th gen steering is.

    Can you make sure Wheel hub nuts are Torque correctly both sides, check the tyre pressure, because some under flatted or over flatted tyres can cause this problem, and check all 4 tyres have same amount of threads remaining,,
    and if still same problem, put the car on jack(front tyres) take out the power steering fluid reservoir cap and start turning the tyres left to right, check that tyres are straight,(toe in and out is in specification) and then try it will be fine,
    if still have problem can you have a circle 3 or 4 times left to right and check if relief valve is open(on full turn)

    couple of days back, my mechanic check some bolt settings in the steering rack and he said that the bolt was over torqued so he loosen it little bit to bring to optimal setting. I dont know anything about that bolt or its purpose or setting, but steering is quite soft.
