From everything I've been reading online I now know that although I have the 3.5 L v6 engine I do not have the one with a hydraulic power steering but instead have the electronic system... so everything going on with the power steering leads to the torque sensor being faulty ... can someone tell me if I were to go to pick n pull and get a torque sensor have my very mechanically inclined best friend switch it out would I still have to then take it to GM to have it calibrated or would I not ?
