Your fluid is low .most times the power steering pump cooler which is located on the bottom of the engine cradle they leak due to road debris.

Did you replacer the power steering resevoir, and have an external cooler? That is where I would start. If that doesn't work, get some Lucas P/S additive.

Have had the same problem since vehicle was 6 months old. There is a tech service sheet that tells the technician to install a copper coil to the steering system. That helped a little. After 12-15 visits to dealer there was no work done. They kept denying there was any wrong and it is common for this model to make that noise. One technician finally told me that repairs would be very expensive and they would not want to do them under warranty. He also said that he would deny saying any of this. I finally had to have the entire rack and pinion system and pump replaced. That solved the problem. I should have sued for the cost of repair, but thankfully I had extended coverage through Geico so it was only $400 total. Hope this helps. No matter what they tell you, there is comething they can do.

Check the fluid level, it is most likely low.

Power steering stiff


If the steering is noisy as well as stiff then the steering fluid is low. If it is not noisy then the fault is most likely the pressure control valve inside the power steering pump sticking open. The Pump would need need to be re-conditioned. Also check steering rack boots are not twisted as well as tyre pressures.

Noisy Power Steering Pump


I doubt it is the fluid. I would guess more likely that the pump is going bad. If it is making a whining sould all the time or when steering at a stop, the pump is beginning to fail.
