I have made sure the power steering resivor stays full and the noise has been around for 2 months now. Tonight I jacked the car up and found a small fluid oil stain on the driver side rack and pinion rubber boot the covers the tie rod. The passenger side rack and pinion boot was dry and clean. Also, I looked around the power steering pump and did not see any leaks.
So I am trying to figure out if the power steering pump is going bad or the rack and pinion is on it's way out. My thoughts are it is the power steering pump cause it has that whine noise constantly when the RPM's increase and gets louder if you turn the wheel left or right. Or both are on their way out, just looking for some input.
have the same problem?
