It definately is more severe when I turn the wheel, even though it only
lasts around 5 minutes. Would a failing power steering pump exhibit
Yep. I think we just ruled out a bad air pump, if what you say is
First step is to check your power steering pump fluid level. It is
low. The pump may not be bad...yet. Unscrew the dipstick and if
it's low (or you don't see any level register at all in the event it is
low), put fluid in. Add fluid till the level is between the two
the car is at operating temp. Also turn the wheel back and forth a
of times before turning off the engine before checking. A hundred
says adding fluid will cure your problem. But also check for leaks.

Thanks very much! I added fluid to the power steering and the noise
has gone away!
Thanks all for pointing me in the right direction!
