My powersteering is making loud noise still?
Hello I'm having a big problem with my powersteering. Ever since I bought this car it made a louse noise while the car ran, and would get louder as I accelerate. I was told this is the powersteering pump and this happens when they go bad. Ok so I decided to have it replaced but now the noise is even louder and now when I turn my wheel it makes this very loud grinding noise as if the power steering pump is struggling. I thought maybe the new power steering pump was bad, so I had another one installed, and yet it still does the same thing. I don't know what to do, does anyone know the solution to this problem. Honestly my car is worse off than it was with the old power steering pump that was on it. I paid lex broady's to bleed the system and it did get a little more quite, but still very loud as it should not be. And after the car sat, and I started it l8ter, the car was as loud as it was before I had lex broady's do the flush and bleeding of the powersteering system. Thank you so much I really need your guys advice.:icon_no:

Mine had the same issue even after replacing. Turns out the plastic bottle had a crack that was letting air get in that made it noisy. Get a new bottle.

Mcdust, try this. Jack up the front end, so the wheels are off the ground. Leave the truck off and key in the ACC position. Take off the PS cap and turn the steering lock to lock, 30 - 40 times. Turn the truck on and repeat the process with cap still off. See if that gets rid of the air.
