Ultimate Power with Holden Commodore Power Steering Pump

Holden Commodore Power Steering Pump is an essential part of Holden Commodore. They provide the pressure that keeps the steering wheel responding to your commands by moving a hydraulic fluid into the steering column, which then turns your wheels to make you turn in whichever direction it’s wanted. Although only used for around 100 milliseconds per lap of racing, there is a large amount of force that power steering systems can create.

The pump is also responsible for keeping all the other systems working properly in your Holden Commodore. If there were no power steering pump, you would be driving down the road with your hands on top of the wheel just like we all did back when cars didn’t have electric windows or air conditioning! You would also experience very bad handling and be unable to see out of either side of your car as well as having trouble looking up at things in front of you as well as sideways at things behind you – but hey, nostalgia isn’t everything right? In this guide I will explain exactly what these systems do and how they work so that you can get better results from your Holden Commodore than I have.

A Shock Absorber located under the rear suspension will not function without them so if one fails they must be replaced.- If there is any sign of fluid leaking into seat it must be replaced within 24 hours – leaking power steering fluid will cause severe damage to vital components like pumps and seals in addition, it can lead to fire damage requiring major repairs- All components should be inspected for signs of corrosion or blockages – clean with compressed air or dry solvent – some seals may require replacement if serious corrosion has developed from

How Holden Commodore Power Steering Pump Works

Power steering is a sealed hydraulic system that is commonly used on cars, trucks and other vehicles. The Holden Commodore Power Steering Pump ensure your car is smooth to drive. The pump has been designed specifically for the Holden Commodore models from 2003 onwards, but it can be retrofitted onto any vehicle with an original power steering system up to 2008.

Power Steering System

The power steering system is contained in the front of the vehicle underneath a bonnet in most vehicles, but at the bottom front of a Holden Commodore VN or XU. The pump is located behind your car’s radiator and it runs through a pipe that passes beneath your car’s wheel arch and up into your wheel well.

It then connects to a hose which comes out through an opening on top of your engine block where it connects to two hoses: one goes to one side; another goes to another side (opposite).

VE Power Steering Pump 

The VE Power Steering Pump sends pressurised fluid to the mounted power steering servo unit to control and steer the front wheels. The pump is a sealed hydraulic system, which means that it’s safe for use in a wide range of environments including:

  • High temperatures and high humidity (up to 60 degrees Celsius)
  • Low temperatures (-30 degrees Celsius)
  • Low pressure (less than 8 bar)

How Pump Steering Pump Works

The pump works by using a piston with a fluid charge to drive an internal pump, which pushes fluid out through a pipe and directs it around the rotating inner workings of the pump shaft, to effect control and steerage of the front wheels. It works in conjunction with an electric motor that drives both steering mechanisms: power assist from your car’s engine or from an electric unit built into your car’s chassis (usually under dash).

The Mini Pump Steering System using the same fluid power as the original disk brakes and mechanical system is a simple, robust and effective method of control of your car’s wheels. The Mini Pump Steering System can be retrofitted to most vehicles currently on the road – including modern A-Bodies (Ford, Vauxhall etc). 

When compared to electrical systems, power steering pumps are more durable, generally more reliable and repairable much cheaper.

Power Steering Pumps are also a lot safer than their electrical counterparts as there is no chance of electrocution in case of an accident or malfunctioning of the power steering system.

Most power steering systems have three basic components:

  • Hydraulic motor
  • Hydraulic pump
  • Hydraulic servo unit

1) Hydraulic motor, which uses pressurized fuel to rotate a piston inside the cylinder. This causes the fluid pressurized in the cylinder to be pushed out through another pipe and guided through additional works whereupon it flows into various hydraulic units (including final drive components) connected to each front wheel.

2) Servo unit that provides hydraulic hydraulic pressure to move hydraulic accumulators (to tune damping characteristics), which can also store energy for increased tension on power steering arms if needed.

Servo Unit: The servo unit is made up of an oil-filled pump and a variable-speed motor. It controls oil flow through the pump to ensure that it runs at the correct rate to provide enough pressure for both increasing and reducing friction in your system.


In a friendly tone, You are not alone in this!! I have the same issue with my 2002 V8. Although it is slightly different, I had a similar issue.

When you drive the car, you feel that there is no power steering fluid on the wheel and no problem with it at all. But after driving for 30 minutes or so, you can tell that your wheels are getting loose – even though there seems to be plenty of fluid in the system.

I read a lot about it and searched forums on this site and others, but never found an answer to what was wrong with mine. Some said it’s because of hard driving like racing or off roading or some other extreme activity….but that wasn’t my case since i don’t do any of those things (on a regular basis at least). I just drove around town for about 2 hours once a week along with normal commuting which is about 100 kms daily, so nothing too crazy either way…just normal street driving…and i still had the problem!

So here’s what happened – When my wife washed her hands in the car one day, she didn’t clean out all of the fluid from within the reservoir as she thought she did. The next day when we started up the car again..there was still some little bubble in there so it made sense to put some more antifreeze into it (which we don’t normally use) to make sure that nothing would happen..and obviously if there were bubbles in there then something went wrong somewhere else! So she filled up a couple of bottles since we didn’t have any other antifreeze at hand – which wasn’t enough….so i added more antifreeze myself and voila!! Problem solved!
