Default Power steering pump

I've looked for a couple of hours now and can't find anything specific, but has anyone had to deal with a squeaky pulley or bad pump? Also, which should I try fixing first? Replace the pulley or just the whole thing? Thanks for you opinions guys.

Sure it isn't the belt? Get some "belt dressing" and apply a little - if it gets quiet, it is the belt.

It does come one go. It's more of a metal on metal squeak than a belt. Some of my coolant splashed on the pump and the sound stopped. That makes me think the pulley and not the pump. I'll try that though. All start with the small right?
