    E36 power steering pumps

    So swapped an m3 steering rack into my 96 328is and have gone through 3 stock power steering pumps. Is there a difference between the m3 pumps and non m pumps????

    That means there is a difference, check with your VIN the correct p/n for your 96 328is

    I guess what I'm asking is, is there a capacity difference. I assume the m3 steering rack is larger and the stock e36 pump may be becoming starved or... Can't keep up the right pressure.

    The pumps have a metal tag on them indicating operating pressure. Match them up to your rack by part number or pressure. Also make sure you’re running the correct fluid, usually ATF, and that your reservoir filter isn’t clogged.

    My M3 pumps makes 110 Bar, ZF p/n 7681 955 259 https://minkara.carview.co.jp/userid...ote.aspx#title
    If I remember correct, the non M3 pump makes 90 bar, but check on the metal tag of your car
