    Power steering fluid.

    Is the fluid level low?

    Do not use additives.

    Re: power steering pump noise?

    Hi ,Just an update on the noise I thought was the p.s. pump, it seems the noise is comming from the tensioner puley area , i would think there is a bearing on the puley wheel that went bad. I will have to check further, the car has 109000 miles, is that a common problem. does anyone have a procedure for replacing the serpentine tensioner puley or assy. thanks tony.
