You can use the standard power steering fluid. if you have a german car then that takes diffrent oil, for example a vw or an audi take diffrent oil for the power steering,most all american cars use the standard power steering oil, just go to an auto parts store and tell them the year make and model car they will give you the right fluid.

Powersteering pump is.growling.

This can be caused from low fluid level. Fill the p/s reservoir and check for leaks, if you still have growling noise the pump has been ran dry and will need replaced and the leak repaired.

Why is it hard to turn the steering wheel?

Check the level of your power steering fluid and have your pump checked. You are probably just low o fluid.

I have a honda accord 1993. I had a leaking power steering pressure line and a bad rack and pinion that I just replaced, but now I have a howling sound when i'm driving the vehicle. it makes the sound...

Is the fluid low?

Did you replace it with an aftermarket pump?

Aftermarket pumps are notorious for making noise. Your nest bet is to get a good used part or get one from the dealer.

If there is a lot of foam in the fluid it will cause the same noise also. You can add an ounce of seafoam motor tune (available at any good parts store) to the power steering fluid. This will help reduce the faoming fluid.

The last thing I can think of is did you use Honda powersteering fluid? If not your going to want to flush the powersteering system ASAP so you don't ruin the parts you just replaced.

I need some liquid to stop my van making noises

It's not the transmission, because you wouldn't see the space that the transmission fluid fills, and it's doubtful that it's the brake fluid, the brakes will act up all the time (stop lights, etc) if that were the case, so it must be the powersteering fluid. If your car is sort of a pain to steer around corners, the slower you go, the harder it is to move the wheel to turn, and you hear a sort of whiney noise when you get into a deep turn, or are turning slowly, that would for sure be powersteering.

Theres a growling noise coming from my power steering

The pump is low on fluid . If fluid level is a-ok check for foam and bubbles in the resvoir. If there is foam and bubbles drain and bleed the resvoir according to spec's. If after all this the pump still growles you may have a bad bearing but before you condem the pump, few more checks you can do. Before I go there lets see how you make out with the foaming and bleeding. Good luck

Steering Noise after changing pump

top up fluid & turn wheels all the way one way & then the other, until all air is bled out. May need to do it a few times.
