Its been doing this for a while. If I am stopped, like in my driveway, and I turn the wheel, a hissing noise starts up. I checked the fluid, its full, maybe too full, but i wouldn't think that would make a difference. I changed the power steering hoses a few months back when one started leaking. But this noise started up about 2 months ago or so and I have just ignored it until now. figured it may become a problem if I dont find out whats up. anybody else have this or have ever had this?

mine does that to. When I turn the steering wheel enough on make the tires move I hear a noise. My buddy heard it to and asked if my power steering was going. It got me wondering if it was the begining of the end for my power steering.
well on mine it started out wining all the time, now it feels like the pump aint putting out enough flow because once in a while it feels like i have no power steering for about 2 sec. then it catches up and back to wining.
Well, you are always going to get a little noise when you are stopped and turn the wheels. I think that's normal. If it sounds really strange or really catches your attention then maybe you have a problem. The only prob I have with my steering is that damn sensor that adjusts the steering for speed. Some of you know what I'm talking about. Mine does that thing where you get in one day and it is normal....and then another time it will be really sensative. Sometimes I'm afraid to sneeze when I'm chuggin' down the road at 80...LOL[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] I need to get off my duff and get a new one for it.....someday[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] It actually does not do it much anymore....maybe it fried.
