i recently developed this humming noise when the truck is just sitting there at idle... sounds just like a power steering pump that is low on fluid.. but the power steering fluid level is perfect and works just fine.. i replaced the serpentine belt and all noises went away for about 3 days but now there back!.. sometimes when i put it in gear it will quiet down and even go away but comes right back.. any ideas?? i checked the tensioner and there is no slop and still has alot of tension on the belt.

I have the same noise that started up around 2 months ago. I dont know what it is either, it sounds like the power steering but the fluid is topped up. ?????

yep.. i know its not the power steering though i move the wheel it moves effortlessly and the noise doesnt change... doesnt affect anything just annoying... after changing to a new belt it was quiet as can be now back to the same noise... fluid is right at max for the power steering

check your oil filter.. i found another tread and here and they claimed a filter can cause that problem.. i only had 700 miles on mine but sure enough i put a better filter on and the noise is gone... seems like these trucks have a small filter same one that fits my honda civic fits this... but give that a try.. worked for me

Does anybody else have a problem when turning one way, then turning quickly the other? When i turn my truck one way its smooth, but if it jerk it the opposite direction after, its very stiff and hard to do. Power steering fluid is full btw.

Yeah, that's happened to my truck a few times, but I didn't know whether to freak out or not, because it started right after I swapped out my regular tires for all terrains, so I figured thats why it did that, if that makes any sense...?
