Thanks Anand, Ignite is a good option, but I am not opting because of distance from my place.

Sorry Anand for late reply....I am put up at Velacherry and my office is at Guindy. So I feel carnation may be a good choice...But when I am reading some reviews I see some negative feedbacks about Carnation (across the country). What is your experience?

What work you done in Carnation?
How is the work quality and rates?
What vehicle you are having?

Last week I gone to HMP and they are quoting 22K + Tax, which I feel not worth to spend for an old car.

Have you got any experience with myTVS?

I own a type II honda city 1.5 with 98 k kms. Power steering pump has gone and needs to be replaced. I am getting a pump cost of 20k + 14.5% VAT in chennai. Is this the market price for these parts and where can i get it changed?
Any advice will greatly help.

Sunil & BHPians
So what finally you have done? Have you ever considered about converting manual steering from Hydraulic power steering?

In this type of case (cars more that 5 years old/ out of warranty), dilemma occur between 3 option:

1. Go for new pump assembly etc costs some ware between 20k-30k and more.
2. Get system repaired at an outside shop but anyhow this option also cost about 50% of first option.
3. Think about converting Power to manual steering. Cost for this option can differ car to car.

I did the work in MyTVS, where they did a good job. They overhauled the PS assembly and the problem is no more. Overall cost (Materials + Labor) - 9K

Bumping up this old Thread.
I want to change all the fluids in my car, I know about engine oil, gearbox oil, Brake Oils. But I have never changed the power steering Fluid!
Where do you get power Steering fluid ? The local Mech says use Brake fluid for Power steering.
The local Lube shop suggest using Gear Box oil for the power steering!

Do we have grades in power steering Fluid? like DOT3,4?

I've seen power steering fluid at the Shell bunk on Hennur road (Kacharakanahalli).

Most hydraulic power steerings use automatic transmission fluid (ATF).
Try to get Castrol ATF Dex II or Spirax S1 ATF .

Check your car's owner's manual if it asks for any specific oil.

Well I cant say that replacement is the only way because specialists can repair/refurbish a steering box, only thing is they absolutely have to know their job. By leak I assume you mean p.s hydraulic fluid. I had the same problem in my car which I found by the slipping levels of p.s fluid in the reservoir. However it was repaired at a fraction of the cost (3k) by merely changing the pinion oil seal which was found to be the culprit. I also got to know they had limited supply of the spare part, otherwise the only other option was to send the entire unit to some specialist or change the unit fully (which thankfully they were against doing).

Go for a 2nd opinion in another Honda service station if necessary. A repair is possible if done in the right hands and can save a lot of money. But a repair improperly done can reproduce the leakage within weeks (worst case scenario). Depending on the availability of options/technicians/2nd opinion you can take the call.

Q1. My Honda Civic, I believe has a HPS system. Whenever I turn the steering to the right, the car at idle raises it's RPM to another 300-400 RPM. So for example, if the idling is at 900 RPM, when I turn the steering to the right it goes up to 1300 RPM or so and then comes down. This happens every time and on every instance the steering is turned to the right. However, it doesn't happen when it's turned to the left. Why so?

Q2. My Hyundai Santro has done some 53,000 odd kms and I noticed recently that the steering does this "tak tak tak" sound every time it's moved to the left or right. It doesn't hamper the effectiveness of the steering, nor has it gotten harder. It's just annoying to hear this "tak tak tak" noise every single time the steering is moved in any direction. Why is this happening?
Hi
My Santro xing 2003 model rack and pinion is not working .I sent it to Hyundai service center and they are quoting 25K inr repair by changing the rack and pinion .

Is it so expensive to change ? Can any one suggest if this needs change

Get it checked with another A.S.S.

20K is the approx. cost if you have to replace it fully.

The power steering assembly in my 15-year old Matiz has been leaking oil slowly over the past 6 months. My regular garage in Bangalore is quoting quite high for overhauling the PS.

Anyone here knows a workshop where I can get the oil seals replaced for reasonable charges in Bangalore?
TIA!
