Trouble shoping - questions

Hey guys I have a 2000 mustang 125k miles on it v6 and it's making a whining noise small at idle and gets loud when I turn the wheel so I though it was the power steering pump so I went to auto zone got a new one and bleed it and waited the 30 days to break it in and it's still there so my only other though was that when I got my car recently allied they said they had to push my inner toe rod past max chamber and I needed to replace it so could it be a bad tie rod or rack and pinion causing the whine???

Rack and pinion is the problem I heard but It's not that big of a deal to me to spend the money to fix

The only thing thy is making me thinkin it isn't the deck and pinion Is that some times new pumps can still make the noise which I hope I don't have that issue

No It's a tiny hole in the steering rack. The whine is air getting into the steering pump. Most Ford make the noise It's not going to hurt anything spend your money somewhere else and relax and enjoy the noise

Re: Trouble shoping - questions

I ended up manually flushing the steering pump sump and running Mobil1 auto trans fluid inside it. Noise free for 3 years now. Worked for me but may be different situations considering you replaced the pump assembly. Just my 2 cents.

Re: Trouble shoping - questions

I did it without disassembling anything. I bought a heavy duty hand held fluid extractor/pump from Autozone. I put a smaller diameter tube at the end to reach inside and kept sucking it all out, fill with cheap PS fluid, run the car turning the steering wheel, then repeat with Mobil1 automatic transmission fluid until fluid completely clear.
-The metal conditioner I use is Militec1, poured 2 oz.'s inside too.
