Air in lines. Start car and turn full left and full right several times. then let it sit till the foam is gone and top off the fluid and repeat.

2000 oldsmobile alero slid into a ditch and now has no power steering what so ever checked power steering pump and it is working


Its possible something broke inside the rack and pinion, but in most cases the fluid leaks out. Its possible something in the steering linkage is binding up and making it tough to turn with or without power assist.

Power steering fluid is leaking and makes really weird sounds


Issue is not likely to be the power steering pump. The sounds are made when there is low fluid in the pump/system. Cheapest check is to make sure that the feed and return lines at the pinion housing are firmly attached. You could also have a leaking seals in the rack and pinion assembly. If you see bubbles in the power steering fluid and there is pressure in the power steering system, this is a strong indicator that the issue is seals and not the pump itself. In Regina, Canada, Canadian Tire charges $45 for an inspection. To replace the power steering pump is about $300, and just the hoses is about $145. Obviously the $45 inspection is your best bet.
