sidekick power steering

Today i took a look at a sidekick that i can get for $600cdn. i wanted to canabalise it for the engine and power steering, but i took it for a test run and found that it didn't have power steering. when i opened the hood though, i found that it does, but it doesn't function.

there is also a loud whining noise while driving that sound like it's coming from the power steering pump. And it's got no power steering fluid.

i'm gonna go back and put in some fluid, but the guy said that he thought it didn't have power steering and that the noise had always been there.

how much damage do you think has been done? do you think it will work if i put in some fluid? is it likely that the noise is coming from the pump?

Re: sidekick power steering

if he has fried the pump or steering box, would it be easy to repair?
