    Since last weekend with some hard off roading I have started hearing what sounds like humming while the engine is on from the power steering pump, nothing is leaking and the steering is 100% fine. Any ideas?

    It was pretty murky, I suctioned some out and re filled to the fill line but the humming sound and vibration are still there.
