FORD XL-3 Friction Modifier

good Morning PSN!

i've read many times over the years that people like putting this additive in their ford power steering pumps that are spec'd to use ATF. Matter fact, on the mustang & explorer type of forums, it seems that ford techs are/were trained to put it right in the pump reservoir due to a TSB, which i have yet to find. and i've been reading on this forum to see if anybody agrees/disagrees but have come up with nothing.

Anyway, I have a noisy pump on a gas powered ford of mine. i've flushed it a few times since i installed it, but it still whines... oh well. they say this additive quietens down the typical ford p/s pump whine and lubes the system without swelling seals.

Now, this stuff is used in rear diffs if i understand correctly. Anybody ever use this stuff for any other reason than what it was designed for?

Re: FORD XL-3 Friction Modifier

never heard of using it in a PS system

and it stinks to high hell just fyi

the function in a limited slip rear is to get rid of clutch chatter
so there may be something to your findings
but i would try a good syn PS fluid flush first if it was mine

Re: FORD XL-3 Friction Modifier

is this the crappy plastic bodied power steering pump?
If so you will never get rid of the whine once it starts no matter what you ad!
I do not see the friction modifier hurting anything, its good at anti foaming

With those plastic bodied pumps I have been through the ringer trying to get them to quiet down, a full flushing does little if anything at one point I even tried a lubricant made from bananas and one with whale sperm in it. Best stuff you can try is lubeguard
see pages 22-23

If you really want the noise gone you need one of these:

I can tell you a ford suv or truck is coming from 1/4 mile when they have one of those plastic pumps from the 90's
