Hi, My power steering pump seems noisey to me. I can hear it inside the car, its louder than the engine. Can you guys tell me if this is normal to the V6 sportage. or if i might wanna look into a fluid flush.

If you haven't already, just make sure there is fluid in the reservoir. If it has been run dry, then you might be in trouble. If it is low, top it up and run it a bit to see if the noise gets any better, not gonna make it any worse. Start simple, work towards hard.

It sounds like it is running low on fluid. Add some fluid and see if it goes away. Make sure to use the fluid specified in your manual (probably PSF3).

It has full fluid, I even topped it off with some PS conditioner fluid, no difference.
