Powersteering making noise!

My powersteering works fine but after I drive a while a noise comes from under the drivers side fenderwell that sounds like someone is squeezing a cat. I drained all of the powersteering fluid out and replaced it with Lucas Powerstreering Fluid and it didn't seem to help. Like I said the powersteering feels fine but the noise is getting really annoying. Any help with a diagnoses would be great, thanks!

Surely I'm not the only one to ever have this problem.

powersteering pump

hey,

I had the same problem with my old f150 (same type of pump, differnt fluid canister) it was the bearings in mine, so for a quick fix, untill I could get a new pump, I added some lucas oil additive and put 20W50 engine oil in it. I did drain the old oil out. The oil did foam up for a few miles, but it stoped the sounds. I drove about another 30,000 miles like that!!!! then I sold it and got a f-350, so I have no idea if it is still working......

if you do get a new pump, make sure you have a pully removal tool, it makes it very easy to get the pully off and so you do not bend or break anything. The pump I got came with a pully installer, if it does not come with one, get a bolt that fits inside of the shaft, a washer or 2 and a nut to install the old pully.

Looking for a FORD.
