2002 mercury sable steering was making loud squeking noises at first but now power steering is like completely gone....when i checked the fluid it was very thick and black which leads me to think i should try getting it flushed before paying to get the pump replaced.

    You should install new pump in clean system as a contaminated system can cause new pump to fail. If old pump is not pumping a all a shop with a flush machine can flush system before new pump is installed. If you need system flushed or pump installed please call Roy at 757-456-0722 and let him know if you would also like a FREE loaner vehicle while yours is being serviced.
