I can hear my power steering pump whine. Fairly noticeable sound with the windows down, driving along slowly with the steering wheel pointing anywhere off centre. (I'm guessing it's had it's time now it's done 106,000miles, and I used to do the occasional snow packed carpark drift which is never good for the p/steering pump)
I've not noticed any pools of oil, but I haven't yet checked the level either yet
What's the worse that could happen?
I'm guessing it'll gradually get noisier and noiser over time. Will any catasthrophic happen one day?
