Default 2009 VUE 3.6L power steering issue


This is my first post and its about an ongoing issue on my 2009 Saturn Vue XR 3.6L. I had this whining noise coming from the power steering pump and I thought "no biggie, my pump must be the culprit". So I went ahead and replaced it with a reman pump from Oreilly. After installation and many attempts to bleed the system, the noise was still present and the steering would sometimes gets hard. I saw somewhere that the bleeding process was lengthy so I did that for a few days without change. I then replaced the rack (I figured it was time to change it given the mileage of 130K) but again no change. So I then thought that the reman pump was bad so I returned it and ordered a NEW OEM ACDelco Pump and installed change. Before I start investing more money, does anyone have any advice? Does the power steering fluid have to be a certain type? I have that "generic stuff" in my system....could it be the fluid? I was thinking of flushing it and filling it with GM Power Steering Fluid. Any help would be appreciated

Did you ever figure out the source of the noise?

Dealing with similar issues on my 2008 Saturn Vue 3.6. Wondering if maybe the reservoir screen is clogged.
