Hello, first check your filter in the steering reservoir to be sure it isn a small cheap maintenance fix. Often it is not the pump but a mechanical isue like a worn steering thrust bearing or bad steering knuckle or king pin. Lift the axle or axles and look for play on the bearings of the knuckle or up and down play of the thrust bearings. It should only have little play and they often can not be greased or anything so replcing is the only solution.

I checked front end it's good , my mechanic says pump ,any suggestions can't find pump anywhere I'm thinking may not be anything else I should check before condemning pump
Technician: Eurotruck72, workshop foreman replied 2 months ago
When everything else checks out good it's probably the pump.
