Power steering is making noise stop leak didn't work for long
My car has 166000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
If the leak is not large and you are able to keep the power steering reservoir full by adding back the missing fluid, you can probably drive the car for quite some time. However, such is impractical and thus professional advice is to just have the leak properly repaired. As far as the noise is concerned, it would first have to be confirmed that the noise is coming from the pump and, of course, that the noise is not due to a low fluid level. If the noise is from the pump, that could mean the pump is failing.
