Power Steering Pump Chirps 99 Van

I have a chirping noise with new pump I installed last summer it was pretty much gone up until recently and just started up again. Could it be I need new pully, my belt is good or possible didn't seat the old pulley all the way snug? I also have the steering pulling hard then letting go, but I think I have found that to be the steering shaft universal joint and am hitting it with Liquid Wrench and it seems to be loosening up

Try spraying a bit of anti-squeak on the belt. Although, that pulling and such seems like there might be an issue with the pump itself.

That's what I was wondering but it's a new pump? So I found elsewhere on here the same symptom and they said try the universal joint, I think that has improved some but who knows it could start at any time I spose. I'll hit that w/some belt squeak,it's due for a new belt anyway, maybe I should just go ahead and through one on. THX

A belt chirp or squeak is often caused by a misalignment of a pulley or something pushing the belt off track. A tensioner or idler pulley can throw it off enough to make a chirp also. Doesn't matter if the part is new, if it not aligned right it can cause a chirp and excessive belt wear.

I ran into that with a vehicle that had wear on the idler pulley. It was the weekend and I did not feel like running to get a part so I made a fixture and turned the OD of the pulley on the lathe to true it up. That fixed the chirping belt.

I wondered if that could be it, I don't have a lathe, maybe I will get down there, It's a PITA with a straight edge and see what I can see. I could just get a new pulley, actually I read somewhere that you are supposed to replace that pulley at some interval. THX
