If you just replace the fluid and the reservoir, you will see a dramatic improvement. From there, if you suck out the reservoir with a turkey baster every 10-15k miles and fill with fresh fluid, you should never have another issue. There was a thread on here about a TSB concerning a rubber o-ring on the end of the PS fluid feed tube. If there was whining going on, replacing this o-ring would solve it. Don't know if that would be an issue as well for you, but you should certainly start with the fluid and reservoir replacement.

Thanks, any good links to how to change the PS fluid? I found an old thread, but the pics had been removed from flickr.

Re: Whine from engine

I wasn't able to locate the thread with the instructions from the service manual. If you PM speedlever, I'm sure he wouldn't mind getting them for you.

The most difficult part of changing the PS fluid is figuring out how to get the reservoir out of where it's mounted... Assuming you intend to change out the reservoir (~$20).

I posted a thread on it here with the FSM procedure and some pics of my process using a Mityvac. It has to be one of the easiest fluid changes on the RL.

I think it's best to elevate the front of the truck so you can crank the wheel without stressing the steering components.

Make sure to only unlock your door. Quickly enter vehicle, locking doors immediately after seated. Fasten your seat belt and be on your way!
Whining stopped, right?
