R34 Gtt Power Steering Pump

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My R34 GTT has been making a terrible whining noise which is louder when cold. It also sounds worse when turning the steering so I thought it must be the power steering pump. I checked the fluid and its at the right mark and there is plenty of fluid.

Just dropped the car into my mechanic and he confirmed that its definitely the power steering pump making all the noise. He said it sounds like there is no fluid in there but there is?!?

He wants to get it rebuilt for $340 as he was quoted $900 for a genuine nissan one from Japan and 10 days delivery time ouch!

Anyone have any experience with these? Please help

i have the same whining sound coming from my engine bay area near the power steering pump when car is idling. i thought it might be either an air leak or a leaking gasket. there is no sound when on boost just idle.

i topped up the power steering fluid to max coz it was near the min mark. i hope that solves the problem.

i have replaced 2 in the last month on customers cars, there must be a power steering virus going around.

i used 2nd hand pumps from Just Jap and they are both fine now, pumps were around 150 to buy

    • TCU is enroute, should be here on Monday. Have just paid for a transmission locally, they've got to pull it out of the car and should be with me on Friday. Just getting little bits and pieces I need for wiring. Thinking about using a small bulkhead connector to run the transmission wiring through the tunnel as the trans plug is quite big.  So all going well i should have the box dummy fitted up next weekend and start wiring.
    • sure, just PM me your email....
    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
