When turning the steering wheel, there is a screaching noise. Visual indicated that the pump pulley almost stops. If the steering is returned to straight ahead, the squealing stops. Adjusted the belt tighter than spec with no change. Is this a pump problem. Plugged filter, or?

If the tension on the belt is good, check the fluid level, and if OK, the pump, or rack is bad.

The fluid level is ok. Is there a way to check the pump or do I have to replace it first to see if it fixes the problem?

SYSTEM TESTS STEERING PUMP PRESSURE TEST 1. Disconnect pressure hose from oil pump. Install pressure tester between pump and pressure hose using Gauge (09572-22100) and Adapter (09572-22000). See Fig. 1 . See SPECIAL TOOLS . 2. Bleed air from system. Start engine and allow it to idle. Turn steering wheel lock-to-lock several times until fluid temperature reaches 122 F (50 C). Raise engine idle speed to 1000 RPM. 3. Close and open shutoff valve to measure fluid pressure. Relief pressure should be at or near specification. See RELIEF PRESSURE SPECIFICATIONS table. If relief pressure is not as specified, replace pump. See POWER STEERING PUMP under REMOVAL & INSTALLATION.
CAUTION: DO NOT leave shutoff valve on pressure gauge closed more than 10 seconds, or damage to oil pump will result.
