Is it low? Low fluid could cause that too.

If it doesn't help, you have to remove the pulley from the pump first and then putting the pulley back on has to be within .025" of correct position.

well i took it out and its still houling , i am not 100% sure its the power steering pump , dont know what alse it could be , would the water pump make that sound , it comes and goes , even if its standing still its there so i know its not a wheel bearing , any one have anything you can think to check , i am not Sure ?hate to buy a pump and change it , and thats not it .it has a after market air cleaner looks like a K&N , but its not , but if thats whats makeing the sound i would think it would do it all the time , ?
