I had this very same problem on my 1995 villager. I recently read that the probable cause is a leak--sucking air into the system.Turns out this was the case: A 'bad 'elbow-shaped piece of connecting rubber hose, the piece which connects into the side of the Power Steering fluid reservoir on one end, and down onto a metal pipe, on the other. I tried tightening the clamps on this hose, while I found the underside of the hose, where it made its turn, damp with power steering fluid. I tried tightening the clamps and left it for a day to see if this would cure the problem. It didn't. So I took the hose off to examine it closely. (I syphoned the power steering fluid from the reservoir to just below the level of the hose in question first). Once the hose was off, I could see it was hardened with years of use. Anyway, after I had replaced it with a straight piece of hose formed into a bend, clamping one end of it onto the reservior & the other onto the peice of metal pipe below. it worked like a charm--no more squealing!!

You probably have an air lock in the pump. You need to take the pump apart and assenble the veins with vasoline so it will prime itself. GoodluckJoe
