Power Steering Noise/Dying while stopped
As usual fashion for me, just replaced the idler pulley for the power steering to act up now. While stopped or very slowly my power steering will make a grinding/whine noise and will become difficult to turn. I've driven without power steering before and it's not this difficult, as if it were fighting against me. If I continue to turn the wheel while stopped then it'll become impossible to turn again unless I begin driving.
After 10 mph there is no noise or creaks while functioning normally. It's worth noting I drove through tons of puddles yesterday in Chicago during flash flooding and don't remember it occurring prior to the rain.
I will upload a video later of the issue, but I presume that a power steering pump replacement may be in order. Looks like my 5th power steering replacement, thanks AutoZone.
