Hi folks, I have a 2010 Infiniti g37x with 140k miles. Last week while leaving after work, the steering felt quite stiff, it took a lot of effort to move it out of the parking spot. It seemed to get a little better at high speeds. Took it to the local mechanic who said it was the PS pump, flushed the system and replaced the pump. The steering now feels marginally better but nowhere close to how it felt before this issues. Any ideas as to what would be wrong? There are no leaks anywhere. Anything else to be tried before considering a rack replacement? Alternatively, can I just keep driving it this way it there is no safety/damage concern?
thanks

If the pump failed it could have sent all sorts of debris into the rack. You might have no choice but to replace the rack now. You could try flushing it again throughly working the steering back/forth in the process and see if it's salvageable.

Was it a new pump? Could it be this replacement pump is worn and not putting out adequate pressure?

I'd be concerned if your mechanic used a remanufactured pump, especially one by Cardone. If you're not worried about that, try to flush out the rack.

Thanks for your responses. AFAIk, it was a new pump and he flushed the system thoroughly.

I'd only use an OEM pump.

Did he use OEM fluid at least?

Funny you say that. I decided to add some Seafood Transtune today and it feels better! Actually not sure if it feels better, figured no harm trying if I'm going to need a new rack anyway.
