Power Steering Pump Wine

I have always had an issue with my power steering wineing. My truck used to have a plow on it and I have had to replace the entire from end. But now the wine is getting louder and its getting to me. Is there anything I can do to stop it. I have added a little lucas oil to it but it didn't seem to help. Is there anything I can do.

I would try brake fluid, it softens up the seals, but besides that, you better start saving your money because that B*tch is about to go out, it's the pump thats whinning, so prep yourself, once they start doing that you have limited time. TRy the brake fluid first and see whatt it does.

plain and simple your pump is probably shot. this was happening to me as well a while back i replaced the power steering pump, and water pump. and i can turn the wheel as much as i want and not one noise its actually kinda weird.

yeah drain everything out then try the brake fluid, you don't wanna mix the stuff, I looked online for the prices and stuff and your right go to autozone or advanced, the online places want a core deposit, I don't know about advanced or autozone about the core. Good luck bud

anyone one know if there is a drain plug. Or I guess I can just pull a hose off and let it drain. yeah I found them online at auto zone for about $70 which is no big deal. They also have rebuild. Has anyone ever messed with that. But I gues for only $70 bucks might as well just get a new one.
