Question Answered: 

Most likely cause is a wheel speed sensor if failing. Need to check stored fault code with compatable scan tool first.

I assume you had a wheel alignment after that work was done....also best have a good shop take a road test for you so they can advise the cause of the noises.

Sounds as if your car is equipped with ABS brakes. (Anti Skid Brake System). Electronic controled a speed sensor located at each wheel is most likely failing. With compatable scan equipment one can may be able to diagnose problem.

Question Answered: 

Good chance the problem is something other than the transmission. Changing the fluid would most likely be a waste of time and money even if it was a tranny problem. Fluid change is for maintenence not a repair. More likely your problem lies with fuel, ignition, etc. Suggest you have diagnosis done first.

All things are possible. The power steering pump is eletronically controlled. The power and ground conections should be checked. These steering system has had failures without being in an accident. I see a TSB that indicates the manufacturer has extended the warranty period on pump and fan motor. The dealer can check to see if your car is covered. Electro-Hydraulic Power-Assist Steering Pump (EHPS) and Cooling Fan: Warranty Extension to 13 years/150,000 miles

Question Answered: 

How in the world did water get into the booster? I would unbolt the master cylinder from the booster while the brakes are seized to see if they free up when the master cylinder is pulled away from it. If they free up ...most likely you need to replace booster.
