Have you put a different type of power steering fluid?

in some instance, if they put a different type of fluid, the solution bubbles up and makes a whining noise when you use the car.

tnx 4 using fixya,

On your power steering pump there will be a filler spout or a hose that leads to a resovoir to put in power steering fluid. also checkthat your power steering belt or the belt to your power steering i tight as this will cause your pump to whine on occasions.

High Pitched Whine


A high pitched whine like that indicates a bad bearing. Water pump, power steering pump, accessory belt slipping, alternator bearing, or in the worst case scenerio, Transmission pump.

Power steering pump


If it's whining then there's definitely a problem. You can change the power steering fluid and then check if the problem is verified or not.

Whining when i press gas


normally, the only part of your automatic transmission that will make a whining noise is the pump. it usually whines when iether the fluid is low or more commonly when the transmission oil filter is getting plugged up.

the power steering pump will also make a whining noise too.

turn the wheel all the way to the right and hold steady pressure against the stop. this puts maximum force on the power steering pump and, if the power steering pump is the one making the whine, it will change the sound of it. (usually louder).

if the trans pump is making the whine noise, it should sound different in neutral compared to drive. this test will really only work if it make the noise without the vehicle moving. if it wont do it at idle hold the rpms at 2000 or so.

if you decide the noise is coming from the transmission, and the transmission filter has not been replaced (assuming you installed a used transmission), replace the filter by removing the oil pan.



oh and also, if it is the power steering pump you should be able to make it make the whining noise while the vehicle is stationary. if it wont make noise unless its moving its not the power steering pump.

Probably not the filter, the Fuel Pump is located under the Back Seat.

Steering makes a whining noise - where is the fluid reservoir?


the suspect part for a power steering whine is the power steering pump, flush (very important) the system and replace the PS pump..

Continuous "whine" @ 1500 RPM only; and jerks/2001 Lincoln LS


Run the car from the top of a hill and let it coast at your whining speed. Put it in Neutral, does the whine disappear?
If not its in the drivetrain (wheels, driveshafts, tranny)
Very unlikely to be the timing belt. If it appears at a fixed speed then its drivetrain, if it whines at fixed revs its the engine.
Most likey the transmission I fear....Tires will also make loud whining noise too though...
