Question about 1988 Ford Crown Victoria
Remove the return hose, put the hose into a bucket and have someone start the engine. This will ump out the fluid. shut it off, remove the belt, unscrew the hoses. Unbolt the pump. replace and restore in reverse of disassy. Fill with PS Fluid recommended for the car. Not a bad job, but oily. Make sure to keep everything clean, as it is much easier to work in a clean environment. Fords do tend to whine, you know. Not loud if healthy, but they do whine a bit.

SOURCE: Power steering pump whines.
Reminds me of a Ford where the bearings went bad in the pump. If the whine is definitely 100% coming from the pump, it's probably going bad. Try going to a junk yard that will let you pull a pump from a wrecked 'stang before buying a new pump to see if the problem goes away.

This sounds like the power steering pump has gone out. You probably can also hear whining when you turn the steering wheel,while you are just idling as well. The leak is probably a blown seal inside the pump.Another possibility is a power steering hose is leaking.
