My grandson has a 2001 MC. The PS pump had a leak and the steering was noisy. He replaced the pump today and bleed it as required. No longer have a leak but still have the noise. Any idea what causes it. Thanks, Tom

Not being an expert I was thinking of suggesting that the noise might be caused by the steering gear or the control valve.

Most likely you still have air in the system and possibly it is from another leak, probably a hose. It takes a bunch of lock to lock turns to work all the air out of the system. Did you do that? Did you use the specified type of fluid?
Good luck!

Thanks: I will pass your information on to him. I know that he jacked the car up as instructed to bleed system. He rotated less than ten rotations. Appreciate your response.
