Sounds like a transmission front pump whine. Unfortunately the only solution is transmission removal. History tells me, it most likely will require a complete overhaul.

Where is the high pressure hose connected on the power steering pump of a 1995 buick riviera 3.8 supercharged

If it’s the high pressure side then it will have metal connections on both ends. The rubber hose is the low pressure side. Follow the hose with the metal ends and you’ll find your answer

Power Steering Pump and Tensioner

if you have nor replaced one before then i say have someone do it. you end up taking off parts ( other brackets ) that have nothing to do with power steering, so you end up taking alot of other parts of until you get to the pump. it is alot of work. if you are going to do it? spend a couple of bucks and pick up a manual at autozone and it will show you step by step. sorry i have no video

Does the fluid for a 1983 Buick Riviera power steering unit require power steering fluid or transmission fluid? The pump on the vehicle has a reservoir which I was told was from a 1982 Buick Riviera. The...

I would drain your power steering pump, even if I had to take it off and dump the fluid! Yes, you do need to use power steering fluid, but what will get you in the most trouble is if you mix your fluids because then they work against each other.

While some people will use transmission fluid in a power steering pump in an emergency, I always recommend they drain it out and use the proper fluid in the proper place.

How to replace rack and pinion

This is a tough one:

You must disconnect lines that go to the power steering pump with a line wrench.

You must disconnect the universal joint that comes fom the shaft in the steering column connected to the steering wheel.

You must undo the tie rod ends on the left and right.

And, you must do this without damaging the metal parts which are fragile.

Best left to someone who does it professionally because it is time consuming and you only have one crack at it.

good luck to you on this one.

Make sure your power steering unit fluid is up to the full mark and no higher when hot, also a belt may be slipping.

No power steering

Ok here ya go jack up the front end and secure it from falling. Then with engine off turn full left and right, have the key on far enough to get the steering lock off. If it turns fine start the truck and do it again look for any leaks and listen for any weird sounds. Make sure the steering fluid is full before you do this. If there is a issue both off and on, engine that is, that's a good sign that it's your stearing gear. If it's only when you have engine running the it's ether your pump not pumping or your power steering portion of you steering gear. One way to check your pump is to take the out flow hose off and make sure you have good flow out of it with the engine running, don't do this for to long. Just long enough to see if it works. Well I hope this helps.
