Question about 1999 Nissan Maxima
When i turn the wheels, especially when idling & not moving, there is a whining & kind of slight rattling noise in both directions. Any idea what is causing this? Is mechanical prob, like a broken pump, or just a fluid type prob? Any help appreciated. Thanx
Honestly, your steering issue could be anything. However, whenever I have had the whining noise I have also experienced some reluctance from the car to actually steer. Has your car been having any problem with being able to steer the car right? If so, then you should look into getting your tires realigned. Comprehensive Tire Service in Paramus NJ

First thing is to check the level of the power steering fluid. If you're low, add enough to bring it back into range. If not, remove the cap and jack the front end off the ground (both wheels). With the cap off, turn the wheel lock to lock, back and forth, several times, to see if any air bubbles need to be bled out (this will bleed them). Then check the fluid level again and top it off as needed.
If neither of these helps, have the steering system checked by a shop - you may have a problem with the steering shaft, the tie rods, or the rack itself.
