2008 VUE 3.6L
Default Power Steering Reservoir Screen


I have a 2008 Saturn Vue XR w/ 3.6L v6. I have power steering whine, and have been trying to reduce it without replacing the pump.

I did a full flush and vacuum bleed, replacing with approved GM power steering fluid. This improved it some, but still did not fix it, so I tried adding some Lucas power steering stop leak, which seemed to remedy the problem for some reviewers. For me, it made the problem worse.

Since the lucas product is very thick, I thought maybe this would indicate that I have a clogged screen on my reservoir, but I haven't been able to figure out if the reservoir actually has a screen without removing the reservoir.

Does anyone here know if the reservoir has a screen in it? I'm thinking if it does, I'll first replace the reservoir to see if that helps, and then move on to the pump if that doesn't help. If the reservoir doesn't have a screen, I won't bother with it.
