Is it making the noise as you turn the wheel or just sitting there idling?

Ok then I dont believe it the power steering then, how do you know for sure it the pump? Does it just sound like its coming from the pump? Cause it could be the tensioner pulley, timing chain tensioner behing the timing chain cover, or another pulley. It very easy to mistake a sound for another.

Ive taken it to two different mechanics and they both said it was the pump. What would be best to change first?
