Re: Power Steering Pump Failure or a Leak?

As for using Prestone anti-freeze, I wouldn't. Prestone has changed it's formula to that of GM's Dexcool, which is the absolute worst stuff you can run in an engine. Even the GM guys are getting rid of it, as it clogs heater cores and engine blocks. It forms a crystal like substance, and just keeps getting worse the longer it's in place. I don't know about the blue Honda stuff, but it wouldn't surprise if it did it too. I've been using Peak in everything for the last 10 years or so without any problems in my GM's, and 4 years now in my Hondas.
The Honda coolant does not crystalise nor do we ever have problems with it.
