How do you quieten down the moaning in a 5L power steering pump, EF EL models. Is using graphite powder in the power steering fluid advisable?

I don't know any way. Mine was real noisy before, did a complete flush and it became quieter. I think they are inherently noisy and get more noisy as they age. You don't notice it unless you're at idle anyway.

Yeh as with auto trans fluid they must be changed regularly as heat burns the fluid and causes damage to the internal parts. Ive partly flushed it and it appears quieter now.
