Hmmm Noisy power steering.

I have a 156sw 2.0ts. I am getting a lot of noise from the power steering, particularly at full lock. The car is new to me this week. Is this normal for an alfa, do I need to top up, or change oil.....?
Anyone advise?

Re: Noisy power steering.

Check fluid level for power steering. If low the pump will cavitate and become noisey (due to air passing through) Will not do the pump any favors either. Most cars pumps are louder at full lock but not just off it.

Check fluid level ASAP, any signs of leakage beneath?
