1998 C230 Power steering noise

Hey everyone. Lately, my C230 has had a random chattering noise from the power steering area, and I noticed that when your cruising on the highway, you can feel an ever so slight movement from side to side in the steering wheel. (like its trying to steer itself) Nothing drastic. Just barely noticeable.
If you have ever dealt with hydraulic systems, the noise sounds like a faulty pressure relief valve. Its random, and usually when is hot and at idle.
Is there a relief valve? Is there a filter that needs changed?
Any help is appreciated.
