Ford power steering pumps can be noisy. This doesn't mean that there is a problem with it. Just make sure that the pump is full of fluid.

The only way to fix it is to replace it with another pump, which might be another noisy one, or it might be a quiet one.

try using mopar atf4 it is really good stuff it may quiet it down. get all the old fluid out and flush with atf4. just remove a line and let it empty. reconnect and use atf4 then repete to flush.

No you can not. If you do it can ruin your quad brakes and possibly your engine. If you do and something goes wrong you could have to spend a lot of money to get it fixed if that.

If you got it fixed at a repair shop or a dealer I'd take it back and have them fix it. If you fixed it yourself, it could be as simple as that you forgot to replace an o-ring on the power steering pump line.. If I knew where it was leaking, I could help you pin point the problem.

The squeaking of a steering column can usually be fixed by adding power steering fluid. It can also be fixed by replacing the belt in the car.
