if there is a steady clicking sound, most likely the gear drive in the motor itself is gone. these motors are pricey, but easy to change. however, you will need to make a couple holes in the panel under the steering column to acces 2 of the 4 screws holding the motor to the steering column.

    My Mazda millennia started running hot and power steering stopped working. Could it be a bad water pump that's making the power steering go? Heat in the car is cold now too.
