Question about 2000 Buick LeSabre
Classic pump problems
short answer is there a lot of aftermarket friction modifiers out there now than may provide relief or solutions today
the best, i my opinion is by Lucas
However, if the pump is too far gone, and by the "sounds" of things it may be, then replacement may be your only solution
the bad news is that there are a lot of re-manufactured pumps out there that when installed will make a similar noise
I find the best solution for most Buick's is a pump from the dealer
sure the part is a lot more money, but its worth it if you have o install a pump 4-5 times to get one that is "good"
as for prices
if you go with aftermarket parts
$300+ if a garage does the work
$100+ if you do the work yourself
if you go with factory parts...
pump is $500 plus 2 hours labor
if you do it yourself and have limited experience and/or tools you may find its a bigger deal than expected
If you need anything else just let me know

Check to see if the power steering belt is loose, a loose belt would make noise. If the belt is tight then I would wait untill your power steering pump completly fails before you replace it. You will know it has failed when you can no longer easily turn the wheel. If you just want to change it out now, click on the link below to order a replacement. The parts are $90 and the labor should run about $60 at a small garage and $150 or more at a dealer
