Power Steering Fluid Story
Thought I would share my power steering story as it may help others on here and I know there has been a load of posts on this before.
When I bought my 159 JTDM 8 months ago, I would get the power steering noise on full lock. Didn't take too much notice as previous cars had been noisy on other cars on full lock.
Over the last couple of months, the wining noise had become permanent and at time really noisy to the point that I thought this cant be just the fluid problem as it sounded a lot more terminal.
Last weekend I bought myself some of the Green GI/R spec fluid to do the change as recommended on this forum and others.
As i drained the old red spec fluid I decided to try an experiment as I had a Liter or so of new red fluid from previous cars, so I did a flush and re-filled with red fluid and took the car for a drive.
The noise was not different and still constant.
Got the car back home and this time drained, flushed and re-filled with the green fluid.
Jumped back in the car for a lap around the block and instantly I could tell the difference. The constant noise from the power steering had vanished completely.
I know there has been a lot on here about weather the changing to the green makes any difference, so in my opinion Yes, it makes the world of difference and has transformed my car from something I thought was terminal
