Question about Cars & Trucks
Does it just need a good flush or?? Had a dirty brown color to old fluid or should I still replace pump?
I would suggest that the noise is from a problem pressure relief valve in the pump
it is releasing the pressure of the pump at short intervals (frequency) which would also account for the loss of assistance in the steering as the pump cannot hold enough pressure to move the ram easily
a new pump may be the way to go but get a proper diagnosis from an accredited power steering shop and then make a decision from there
