Question about 1995 Cadillac DeVille
If you have the money and time to get it replaced I would replace it. Have you checked the power steering fluid to make sure it's at the proper level? That is easy to check under the hood and the cap will say power steering fluid on it. There will be a level indicator on the reserve for it. Losing the power steering isn't bad but makes it tough to turn the wheel at low speed or when you are parked and trying to back out and turn. But I would check the fluid first, then if you take it to a mechanic have them make sure it is the power steering before they make an unnecessary fix and charge you if it's not that. That whining noise may be the belts too, but I would think whoever told you it was the power steering would have known clearly if it was the belts. Without hearing it it's tough to tell but hope that gets you in the right direction.

Testimonial: "Thank you. I'll go back to my mechanic to have him check the belts and then get an estimate on what it would cost to replace it."
Yes. I would check the fluid level and belt tightness and perhaps change the belt. Also see if you are losing fluid at the pump or steering box. The noise might be air in the lines or from low hydraulic pressure if you hear it more while turning. If the noise persists have a second opinion or just change the pump to give yourself a margin of safety.
