"Whine of death"

Tried to find this thread after signing up, no luck. My 04's whining is driving me nuts! My mechanic just keeps putting fluid in the pump, doesn't help. I can do that, and do, but would rather get it fixed.
Is there a fix, or should I just find someone to replace it? Thanks Y'all!

62 year old female nurse, mechanically challenged, so, no, not fixing this myself.

I'm assuming your talking about the power steering whine? It's a very common problem with our cars, I've even replaced the power steering pump without the noise going away, So I'm assuming the rack and pinion need replaced. Hopefully another member who had replaced it can, chime in.

Ford power steering pumps are notoriously noisy. It sounds like yours must be leaking if your mechanic keeps adding fluid.
First, I recommend finding a good mechanic!
You probably need to replace the power steering pump. Make sure that whoever does the work, knows to flush the entire system with fresh power steering fluid BEFORE installing the new pump.
That pump not only provides power assist to the steering, but to the brakes as well!
