Power steering pump

I was driving around the other night with all the windows down and as I passed cars and fences and such I noticed an odd 'ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh' noise, never really notcied it, but it seems to be the power steering pump. Never really gets any louder, just stays at a constant noise level.

I heard from a buddy that some people have complain about other fords having loud ps pumps, whats the word on that?

Re: Power steering pump

After time, pumps will get noisy from contaminated fluid or just wear. If the P/S Fluid is dark in color, then try changing it with a suction pump and new fluid. If that does not help, then deal with it or replace it.

Re: Power steering pump

Ya thats basically what I figured. Its still being pretty noisy and today I think I started noticing a little more resistance in the wheel, Ill check out the fluid tomorrow.

God I hope I dont need to replace it...that would be unpleasant.
