Noise when turning steering wheel

Lately I have noticed a noise like a whine when turning the steering wheel. At first I thought it was a bad bearing, but now I'm not sure. Could it possibly be like air getting into the power steering system when turning the wheel. It does not do this all the time. I do know that the power braking system and the steering system are on the same supply resevior, but as I understand it you are not supposed to add fluid to the resevoir.

You can absolutly add power steering fluid if its low. If it is, add some and see if your noise goes away.

This is the worst thing possible for the pump. If the pump goes dry, it only takes 10 seconds to melt the pump if it goes into pressure relief. Once a noise is present the pump generally does not last long. The pump on the your vehicle is a beast though and relatively unchanged for the last 50 years.

Not so fast guys, there is a thread here somewhere that says a complete flush of the fluid will bring life back to the system. You will need to search for it, so I can't as I'm on my cell phone.
