The first thing to check is the power steering fluid level. And of course, you're most likely on the hunt for a leak.

I'd start by plugging your car's info into realoem.com

the power steering fluid is right behind the oil filter housing, the cap says ATF only or w.e. mine was making a loud noise too but it was just low on steering fluid.
