I bought a 1988 Buick La Saber in October 2016 from a lean sale. It was an old car and there were some small things but it was a great price. There has always been a little bit of wining when the wheel is turned but the last two weeks its gotten a lot worse. I asked around, described the sound and got that it was a power steering pump. Bought one. My question is: should I replace it myself? I have someone who can help me who has a home shop and tools but I've seen a few YouTube videos on replacing pumps and it looks kinda tricky. Also where is the pump located on this model of car? p.s. there is a slight jar/grind when the car is placed in reverse. I've been told this is the U joint. Is that accurate?
