Question about 2001 Hyundai Tiburon
My son's car used to make the whining noise usually associated with power steering only when he turned the wheel to the left and right limits. I replaced the pump and now noise happens intermittently when I start the car and turn the wheel. If I drive the car, the noise occurs at turn limits or not at all. I bled the system per the service manual - jacking up the front end and turning the wheel back and forth several times.
Also, there is some confusion as to what fluid to use. The book says PSF-3 but the auto parts store had never heard of it. I've also heard of using Dexron ATF. I added some regular steering fluid (not ATF). The level didn't drop much after I changed the pump.
There are no leaks from the rack (yet). Am I using the right fluid? Is the viscosity of power steering fluid different from ATF? What's causing the recurring noise?
Use what the manual suggest to use. it should be standard power steering fluid. do not use ATF. ATF is automatic transission fluid.
you only use this if the manual says to usually only on a merzades.
the wining noise could be the pump breaking it's self in. it will do this for a while untilt he pump is completley broke in and is used to the being used.
