    Can someone tell me if a seal kit will fix a noisey power steering pump? Last night I flushed the fluid hoping that would help but no change. The pump doesn't leak and appears to work fine. No steering issues at all, just very noisey. I'm debating on taking it apart and doing a seal kit or should I just buy a rebuilt one for over $100.
    The 4runner is a 2.7 4cyl 5sp 4x4 with 130k miles.

    Thanks

    Wow, two weeks and not one thought? I guess I'll just discuss this with myself. So my research has lead me to believe that maybe the screen is clogged up and not allowing the proper fluid to flow through the pump. I've located a used psp and will probably pull the reservoir clean it the best I can and reinstall. If that doesn't change anything then I'll rebuild it and have a back up if something goes south. I'll report back with results for those who are having the same issue. Kinda hoping pulling the reservoir and cleaning will solve the problem.
