Default power steering pump

Have replaced and bled two
pumps and they still whine.
Any additive to make it quiet
down?

Sometimes they just tend to make noise. Had the same problem on my wifes 2005 Montana. Brand new pump sounds exactly the same.

I'm with Dan, my 97 whines like a supercharger. It even fooled my father-in-law into thinking my car was */C'd.

A failing supercharger coupler usually sounds like a box of rocks tumbling around..The pump in my lesabre sounded like an SC whine especially after the gutter airbox i put some lucas in it and it never whined again
