Power steering pump on a Ford is good for this . When running turn the steering wheel . Does it turn hard or make a louder whining noise ? Check fluid . Make sure belt is tight . Last . Might just need a new pump . Start there if motor seems to run ok .

when you start it its real loud and dies a little after awhile, but it still loud enough to hear over the duals.
