Power steering noise

89 mustang gt stock and I placed a new power steering pump with all new hoses and I put Type F fluid in the pump. I still have a noisy pump. It gets louder as the car warms up. I'm about to buy a new rack & pinion but just wanted to see if anyone has had this problem before and any input is well appreciated.

Common Ford problem. I used a friction reducer I think it was a Lucas product or sea foam. Can't remember. But it sure made it a lot less noticeable.

Well I can tell ya I've done everything possible to make mine quiet as well. Changed pump, pulley, hoses, belt tensioner, used synthetic fluids. ....everything but changed rack and pinion. Still as noisy as ever. I must say, the 90-93 Fox bodies were huge and still are when I was in high school. When they were new, I worked at a Ford dealership and I can tell you they did NOT sound like the whinny noise they do today. What is the problem????? I wished I knew....beats the hell outta me

Lots of people have this problem. I too don't remember them being this way new. I recently replaced my ps pump and rack and pinion. Made noise from first start up. After driving a couple weeks and doing all the normal checks, I couldn't get it to stop. Then I checked my fluid again, it was a little low, added more, and it was quieter for a while. I'm wondering if the fill line on the pump housing is not an accurate read. Maybe if we overfill it a little all our problems would go away. Jk. Also maybe after driving a bit, the fluid works out more air bubbles and stuff, idk, just a thought.

Sounds like the only fix is a manual rack, lol!

I'm looking at replacing the rack and possibly the p/s pump soon on my 86, so I'll have to update with the results.
