    My 2003 VY Commodore is making a vibrating noise when turning the steering wheel when not moving. Power steering pump, or rack?, I did notice abit of oil looking stuff on the boot of the rack under the car? sounds like this

    Is there still fluid in the reservoir?

    Sounds like air in the line from lack of oil.

    Cheers Mate :)
    Put it in the VY ute I bought as a daily runabout because it was moaning and groaning
    New fluid on it's own made no difference, so added the Penrite 4297......5 years later and the pump is still quiet

    Now, is it good enough to fix a leaking PS rack?

    Nice. Maybe mine just doesn't like the dex6 ATF I put in it instead of the regular DexIII I didn't have any off the day I flushed it?

    Are the later models pumps a Saginaw like on VR? I was hoping to use the left over Nulon full syn i will have on hand, when the engine and trans go back in.

    V6 uses the same basic PS pump from VN right through to VY only the reservoir changes for the ecotec.

    I don't think reporting an Admin for posting will win you many favours.

    Don't be received into thinking that Nulon full syn is dex6. It just meets some of the criteria...
