Heres the symptom Im having.
Everytime I turn the steering wheel whether clock or counter clock wise, at low speed or idling at a stop light, it makes a continuous eek..eek..eekk..eekk.. sound. No hiss,pssss sound, Just continuous eekk...eekk.eekk...

Anyone with this problem? Or have any idea what could it be?

thanks in advance.

I would look at the soft hoses that go to and from the power steering reservoir. If those are rock hard, I'd replace them. There's also an o-ring that seals the 90 degree feed neck on the top of the pump. That o-ring can deteriorate and shrink, letting air in.

We sell a general power steering repair kit that includes these parts and is intended for catching issues before they ruin the pump.

That sound you're hearing is likely air getting into the system. If it gets worse, then you can momentarily lose power steering, which can be dangerous.
