I have a 98 c70 with 172,000 miles on it and I'm starting to have problems with the power steering. When the car is warm and I make any sort of left or right turn while driving I hear a moaning sound coming from the power steering or rack and pinion. Any thoughts? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Would changing the fluid do anything to solve the problem? <p>If so, how do you change it? There doesn't appear to be a drain plug on the pump? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>If not, does it sound like its time for a new pump or a new rack and pinion?<p>Thanks!

Re: Power steering pump or Rack and pinion? (PM)

<br>If you do anything with the fluid make sure you don't mix the old red fluid with the new green fluid. They are not compatible and make react.<p>I mixed the two and my rack bled thru and I had to go for a new rack. Not certain if the fluid mix was the cause but pretty coincidentle.<p>My 2<p>rd
