Have a 98 5.0 36,000 and the noticed the PS fluid was low. Looked behind the pulley and it seemed a little damp. Refilled the pump and it seems to be holding. Maybe some air still in it but a definite noise at start up and idle.

Now I am getting some under hood noise and wondering if anyone esle has had PS pump failure with so few miles.

I know the pumps can be noisy and loud but early leaking seems odd.

Also wondering if any trouble with idler pulleys this soon?

Also any recalls on this as it out of warranty?
