power steering 2002 ml500

Power steering suddenly started whining and difficult to steer.
Just 2 weeks ago Had 3k worth of work done after towed in for bad crank position sensor( car just stalled and would not start )
Then they discovered water pump pully wobbling - needed new waterpump ,valve cover gaskets leaking - needed replacments, brake fluid needed flushing, oil change, new battery.
Anyway, do you think this could be related to any of that work done?
How should I proceed? I can replace parts myself but not sure what I need.
Also wanted to add that I don't see any leaks and when looking at fluid level I noticed fluid looked foamy.
