Why does Power steering noise(severe) occur when engine gets hot?
I have repaired a leaking PS hose this helped some but noise seemed to increase so a rebuilt PS pump was put in car(twice) first one defective. The car seems to run fine until the engine gets hot or have been driving car for long periods of time and then the noise returns but very loudly and at the most minimal of turns.

You have to let the air out of the system,open the container from , steering liqiud.start engine,turn steeringwheel 7 times left and 7 times right all the way.refill if needed.its normal to hear loud sound when steering all the way to the end,but its best not to do that.its not made for steering all to the end.

If the hose itself is leaking (not the connection/end) , replace the hose. If the hose is more than 5 years old, I'd probably just replace it. If it's the low pressure hose (return) and it's leaking at the junction, you can probably replace the clamp. If it's the high pressure hose (with the machine-formed hose ends) then replace the hose - a clamp is unlikely to withstand the pressure and you don't want to take the chance of it blowing off when you're turning.
It could be a leaking hose, and the PS fluid is dropping on the hot exhaust. Check the fluid level in the power steering reservoir. If low or dry, look for a leak.
I don't know about the rattling-better have someone look at it.
Sounds like your power steering fluid is low, you may have a power steering leak, look for fluid draining out of your vehicle, wet spots on the ground etc. The system can leak from the hoses between the pump and the steering rack, from the steering rack itself, from the pump itself. Check all of these items to determine which is leaking, you will have to fill the power steering fluid to find the leak. If this sounds like way too much, then take it to your favorite repair shop and have them take a look. Hope this helps, let me know.
First you need to verify where the noise is coming from. Squeaking and grinding is bad, like brakes, wheel bearings or ball joints.If you turn ther steering wheel while sitting still, that rules out brakes, or wheel brgs. The leak may be ps fluid, but check the hoses first, thats the most common thing to leak.
Dealer, but did you check the Power steering fluid level??or any leaks. There are two hose that connect to the gear box from the power steering pump. if the pump is low on fluid you lose your power steering, if the hose has a leak or it blew and lost the power steering fluid then you lost your power steering again.
Check the fluid level to the power steering pump and any leaks or broken hose to the gear box.
Keep me posted, be glad to help and good luck.
you have to bleed the power steering system. you have someone turn the wheels to the left while you watch the power steering fluid level adding as needed. than repeat turning the wheels to the right. and repeat until the noise seems to get quieter and you don't have to ad any more fluid.
