My engine is making a noise that sounds like my power

Customer Question
My engine is making...

My engine is making a noise that sounds like my power steering pump may be low of fluid. Where is the resavore?

Mechanic's Assistant: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?

No I haven't and I don't know when it was checked.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chevy?

2004 and it is in a workhorse chassis in a motorhome

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I intend to check it if I knew where it is. I suppose it has to be on run by the fan belt??

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nope. except that I have replaced the serpetine belt.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned you will receive a system automated call request, that is not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Also I am not paid hourly by just answers, I am only paid when you rate me, so if you could please respect my time and knowledge by rating me when we are finished that would be wonderful. If you could please indicate your level of experience and what you are looking to get out of your session today. Ok lets get started!
