My truck is disappointing me. I started my truck and it made a loud whine. When I turn the steering wheel the whine gets louder. I saw a spot of oil on the floor so, I am guessing its the power steering pump. Any information on what to look for? Any common problems? Lokks like its dealership time.

You are probably leaking fluid from the power steering cooler hose. These were absolutely notorious items and were recalled in a couple of different campaigns. Now MB covers them for something like 150,000 miles, so if that is the cause, the hose and any incedental damage it has caused should be taken care of by the dealer. It is also possible that the fluid level is a bit low.
