Power steering

When I am moving slowly and turn, there is a loud screech. It also happens when I turn all the way left and right. Is this the power steering pump? Could it be anything else?

It is the power steering pump and it sounds like you are low on fluid. this allows air into the system which causes the screech.

Thanks for the confirmation Dave. The system is losing fluid somewhere for sure. We top it off as needed. But the noise is there even when full. But I do agree that we need a new pump
