Q: noise sounds like Im out of power steering fluid but Im not. on 1999 Toyota Tacoma

the same noise as low or no pwr steering fluid developed suddenly. at idle there is no noise and I turn steering left and right there is no noise but if i give a gas the idle rises and the sound stars. it may be my imagination but it appears to be coming from the timing chain area. all fluid levels are ok. when Im driving there is a sensation when turning that tells me it could be the power steering
