AOA! by the grace of ALLAH bought civic 05 and sold my lovely city 02. the civic is good but the power steering is bit hard(power steering oil is on right level n no leakage) i mean yesterday i drove my friend`s city 05 its steering was liek hell smooth i asked my friend n he said that city has electronic type of steering , so i wanna know if its true or im having some problem with power steering
05 civic has HPS(hydrolic power steering) which some times feels hard but i am not sure about city about EPS(Electronic Power Steering).But if we compare EPS with HPS then EPS is much lighter then HPS.
Ur friend is right. City's steering is more smoother because of being EPS while civic steering is bit harder due to being HPS. Beside this fact, there's another fact that this model civic has relatively harder steering then the rest
oh ok thanks brother i thought im in trouble
All City/Fit/Jazz from 2001 onwards has EPS.
Civic has still kept HPS.
bro change the power steering oil with geniune honda power steering oil
Wrong. ZIC gives better performance than the honda so called geniune PSF which is available in the market with the name of caltex anytime anyday in quite reasonable price rather than insanely high price
@Khan6653,After changing oil it will be alot lighter and if you still find it hard then go to bilal gunj and ask about changing HPS to EPS as THAI version EPS steering racks are available and in exchange it will cost you around 10k with labour.
NEVER NEVER EVER mess with a 7G Civic Steering or rack.
Just keep the Fluid checked and do not push the steering at full locks, all the time.
It is one of the best steerings in world.
in my corolla there is eps also and some times i am scared of i loose a tire because i cant feel the road responce that much
@panicbro i guess u should use geniune oil for power steering or brake oil etc bcs no one can judge btr thn the engineers who mke the car
05 Civic's steering is a bit harder than that of City's. But it is good in a sense that you feel more confident while driving and can feel the control over car. I think EPS steering is suppose to get harder while you increase your speed, but I didn't feel it happening in a City. I may be wrong though.
Its normal. dont change anything. just keep your oils in check.
8gen steering is harder than 7gen.
just change the oil, i would recommend you to use genuine oil.
i think changing oil with genuine one is more reliable rather than changing in steering n stuff
HPS is surely harder but give feel of a driving on the road in comparison to EPS.
However EPS has an advantage of no extra load on the engine which is in general good for our CNG cars.
bros my 95 dolphin steering was so hard that after driving my shoulder pains.mechanic check it and clear valves from steering rack and my steering moves like air but after 3 days it get harder again after flushing valve i put zic steering oil which comes in red bottle.
any PSF with Dextron III grade can be used....
ZIC power steering fluid (Red Bottle Rs 410) is good as per my experience
is there any steering wheel locking system in honda civic exi... coz me ne suna ha k hi speed me is ka steering lock ho jata ha nd become harder.. esa koi system ha kya is me ??
