Could also be tue fact there is alot of air in the system due to a leaky line..... find out exactly where the leak is coming from.... i suspect a line is shot.... the sound you hear is likely called cavitation...from air in the pump

But it could also be the pump aswell..... but regardless you need to find that leak and fix it first. ...then go from there

Try adding in some UV Dye made for oil/trans/PS fluids. Let it run for a while and have it checked with the UV light. Pinpoints it pretty good.
