My powersteering pump has been making a lot of noise for almost a year and it got worse. I decided to change out the o-ring on the pump. It only made noise when it was cold. So far I've noticed there is less load on the engine, the engine runs cooler, and my fuel trims are more in line of where they are supposed to be. Now to check if the noise goes away tomorrow morning.

Since you have an 08, just a small tidbit in case the sound is still there. My friend had the whine on his as well. He did the o-ring and nothing changed. It ends up it was the belt that was getting old and stretched out a little. He said it's been running like new since the belt swap.

It's not the belt. It was replaced during the engine rebuild. It makes sense, though. I had a static leak at the pump and the o-ring was hard allowing air to get in the system. It still makes noise, but not as loud and in shorter duration. The pump may also be on it's way out. I'm going to continue troubleshooting it and see if the air will eventually purge out. The powersteering fluid still has bubbles in the reservoir.

Powersteering whine eliminated. No more cold start whine.
