Power Steering
Hello all.
Two months ago my power steering appeared to be going out. Loud humming noise upon starting vehicle, not just when steering. Replace the pump with a new OEM from Cadillac. All has seemed normal until Friday. The humming is back and steering is getting a bit stiff. Could the part be bad or do I have another problem?

RE: Power Steering
Have you checked the fluid level? If the fluid gets low it will cause that condition. You may have a slow leak somewhere in the system that is the real problem instead of the pump? That may have been why you had the noise before? When the pump was changed they filled the system with fluid and the noise went away until the fluid leaked back down. The noise would be more apt to happen on a cold start because the fluid is lower. When the fluid warms up it expands and the noise will go away.

Hope that helps. Please let us know what you find.
