Default The other day I added non-Honda power steering fluid to my 1992 Honda Civic. Will this cause...

...damage? The Honda is a 1992 Civic, standard trans.The steering suddenly stared going wild and is almost impossible to control and it makes noises.The non-Honda fluid was added two days ago and it just started acting weird.Can this problem be solved by simply flushing the system or is there damage? Will it be expensive to fix?The manual says add ONLY HONDA power steering fluid.

Yes, you are suppose to used Honda only steering fluid. Before you create more damages to the gearing, flush the system ASAP. If that didn't work, you are screw. We are talking about replace your rack & pinion and steering pump... Big $$$$$$.

i would say you have a problem with your rack and pinon, because that's never happened to my 95civic and i just put brake fluid into the power steering reservoir and it works fine.. I would take it to a mechanic to have them look at it and tell you exactly what's wrong
