1996 Mercury Sable LS V6 3.0 DOHC 164k humming noise whever turning the wheel to the right while driving. Never to the left & even when I drive straight if I turn it just a lil to the right I hear this loud humming sound. I'm thinking it's the power steering pump.

Do you
have the same problem?

You didn't say how many miles were on your vehicle, but it could aslo be a wheell bearing. I had my drivers side wheel bearing go out at 100k miles. The noise seemed to change in sound when I unloaded the bearing by sharply turing right or left. Before, I pin pointed the problem, I was convinced that the sound was coming from the transmission.
