mine has been whinning for over a year now, sometimes its worse than others. Fluid is fine, and I see no leaks. Power steering works fine too. I worry about it every now and then, but everything seems fine so far.
mine wines like crazy. and i just drove it from Cali to FL 2 days ago. it ate fluid along the way, about every 300 miles i had to refill it. I cant find a leak, but there seems to be some accumilation around the top of the reservoir. i dont know, maybe the cap isnt sealing properly? we shall see im taking it into the shop tomorrow.
I just changed mine today. Took about an hour. Don't pay someone unless you really aren't mechanically inclined at all. Take the pulley off, a couple of bolts for the pump bracket. Rubber line on the right side of the pump resevoir. Hard line on the left. Then connect the new pump to the resevoir and mounting bracket and reinstall.
