Keep an eye on your fluid level and turn it left and right the air should work its way out of the system and into the reservoir and top it off when it gets low that way not to pull in more air. It will quiet down eventually.

Noisy steering when turning

check power steering fluid level or for air bubbles in fluid, if low or bubbles found find and correct fluid leak. if fluid is ok most likely the pump is failing. Other possible causes are steering gear or linkage binding but are not very common problems.

If is no leak, then maybe you need to bleed the power steering pump. jack the vehicle from the front , and leave the tires free from floor.Take off the steering pump cap, pull the steering wheel all the way to one side and hold for few seconds, let the system to bleed air , then pull all the way to the other side and do the same. somone should be looking the pump to see if air bubles are coming out, repeat as nessesary, If after this proceidure power steering still hard and noisy, replace the pump.

Note: Safety first. Use stand jacks and other security tools to prevent accidents.

Power steering leak making loud buzzing sound more loud when turning

The power steering leak is creating bubbles in your power steering pump which gets strained more when turning, which causes it to be louder when turning. If you know where your leak is, then fix that, then try to bleed your ps system by filling up with the cap off the resevoir and turning the steering wheel max left to max left with trans fluid. if the noise is still there then your ps pump needs to be replaced along with the ps vsv located on the side of the pump.
