Change the power steering pump or make sure its not a belt noise.

Does it sound like a belt noise? If so check the belt for glazing or cracking and make sure your tensioner is putting enough tension on the belt to keep it from slipping. What kind of noise is it?

I don't have a tensioner anymore and it's a new belt as well. Can it make noise if there is fluid blockage in the rack?

Generally you would feel that when turning because it would be hard to turn.

A power steering pump will "squall" when it is getting worn out, or if it had been rebuilt and they did not get the "slippers" back in the same position as they came out (see pic) it will make noise.





The "slippers" will go back in in either direction, so I always mark the tops of mine in order to ensure they go back in correctly. I also try to keep the springs in order with the slippers, but it is not always possible and so far it does not really seem to matter.


The noise can also be caused by air trapped in the system, clogged pump screen and/or contaminated burned fluid.
