Do you mean the PS squeals all the time or just when you turn the wheel. Check if the fluid is low or open the hood and listen for any noise from the belt. The belt has a tensioner that keeps the belt tight and the tensioner pully bearing could be going out. The pulley bearing has been know to go out and break the serpentine belt, which leaves you dead in your tracks. Other members have taken the pully off and regreased it to extend its life. Here is the URL for this procedure.

Hopes this helps.

I would start looking for a new or rebuilt pump before this one goes out. If it goes out, you are dead where you sit, as you will loose your belt from lock up and everything that is turned by the belt. Try looking up Ebay parts or Europarts-SD.com but there price is $310.00 for rebuilt. Also check for eurovans that are being parted out. Another option is to find a rebuilder in your area.
