    I have an '04 MDX with a power steering problem. It started with a high pitch whine on start-up for a few days then escalated to major noise. I found the PS fluid container showed signs of significant fluid loss. The local mechanic (not a dealer) replaced the "power steering pump" as the fix ($400). The leak & whine stopped but now the steering is major sluggish at low speed when doing a hard turn (like when parking). He bled the system and suggests it will improve by driving more. Could there still be air in the system, or possibly a bigger problem - like the steering rack and/or the HP hose? (how can a "steering rack" leak anyway ?)
    Any advice B4 I go back to the mechanic would be greatly appreciated.
