Hello, my power steering pump grinds really loud when you turn the wheel. It has done this for around 10000 miles. It has no driving issues it is just noisy. The fluid and filter have never been changed on it and the fluid, filter and pump are original with 216000 miles. Would it be worth to change the fluid on a high mileage pump or should I just replace the pump entirely?

Try the oil change first nothing to loose, if no improvement do the pump.
