Power steering fluid is low. If that is ok then you have a bad water pump or power steering pump.

SOURCE: 96 lincoln town car- loud humming noise

I had experienced the same problem with my 93 TC. I'll try to make it short. Replace the Idle Control Valve. Cost me $50 at AutoZone. It has a electronic plunger that has a rubber o ring on the end of it. It separates two air chambers inside the valve. When the rubber gets old and the plunger is suppose to cut off the air coming in from one chamber to the other, the air gets sucked between the chambers across the old rubber causing the humming noise. That is also why the engines revs up and down and wont idle right. It is located between the firewall and the back of the motor just to the left (drivers side) of the throttle control assembly. When you look up on the internet on how to replace it, it will tell you to remove all the housing surrounding the wiper blade control arms and assembly so that you can access it. If you take your time, just remove some of the hoses and wires connected around it and you can access it without removing all that ****. Only has two screws to it that point up and can be reached with a ratchet and extension. Car runs great now and finally got rid of that noise.

Have your power steering belt checked and adjusted, or replaced if worn.

SOURCE: When starting up the Kia, screaming belts sound is heard

Hi. This might sound obvious but it isn't just the alternator belt requiring adjustment or replacement is it? Sounds very much like it from your description. Forgive me if youv'e already ruled that out.

If you are stopped and can turn the wheel back and forth, it is not the power steering.

You have a leak somewhere.. If filling the pump does not stop the noise then the pump is going bad. Be sure the leak is at the pump before you change the pump or else the new pump might go bad as well from being low on fluid.

Its likely that filling the pump back up should stop the noise though unless you have run it a while its empty.

I have a noise in the steering of a 1996 lincoln towncar front end.

Can you describe the noise? If it is a whine, then you may need to add fluid or flush the system. This must be done periodically just like engine oil. You may also have a bad pump if neither helps the problem. Clunking or popping while steering could be bad tie rod ends or ball joints. Look behind the tire and check for worn or ripped boots on the tie rod ends.
