I'm having a problem with my 2004 Chevrolet Impala (3.8 Engine).


The fact that you have to add fluid suggests that the pump has run dry, and been damaged. You are going to have to fix the leak and replace the pump.

Power steering filter


Is it full of power steering fluid ? How are the hose's high pressure and low pressure ? Did you bleed the air out after changing the pump ? There is no filter .
Verify power steering fluid level per operating specification. Refer to Checking and Adding Power Steering Fluid.
Start the engine. Rotate steering wheel from left to right. Check for sign of cavitation or fluid aeration (pump noise/whining).
Verify the fluid level. Repeat the bleed procedure, if necessary.

What could be wrong with the power sterring if it makes a loud noise. after checking poer sterring fluid


The most common problem with noisy power steering (whining noise) is that the power steering pump is defective. If you replace the pump make sure you flush the system with clean PS fluid or it can ruin the new pump.

SjmMy power steering pump is whining in my 2006 impala ss. I checked the fluid one day and it was low is when the whine started. My friend said air in the pump. I tried the jack the front end up and turn...


Just keep the fluid level full and the air will bleed out on it's own. Be sure to check the level for the next few weeks to judge the size of the fluid leak present.

Is it cold where you are? Whining sound is indication that it is starting to fail. Cold weather can make it whine also.

Power steering pump is clicking and whining


It sounds like the power steering hydraulic system has air in it, causing the pump to whine and the bubbles to show up in the fluid. The clicking noise is probably just the power steer pressure switch operating normally, but you should probably take it back in to the repairer and get them to check it over if you're concerned. They should not have given it back to you if the power steer was not bled up properly, or at the very least should have advised you that it was not fully bled, but would come right after a couple of days.
