Sure sounds like its low of fluid or the filter is very dirty! My guess is that it works well driving straight open road. Most often the filter is inside the pump. Frankster016

Is it a "wine" noise that gets louder when you rev it up? Sounds like an idler pulley. Is it a 3.3L motor?

Power steering pump in noisy when first started when cold, 2004 santa fe 3.5, has 62000 miles


Try flushing the fluid,which you should be
doing every 3 years
Add a bottle of Lubgard for power steering or
what ever the dealer has
Use the correct MFG Fluid

Eventually you will replace the pump,
when you can no longer stand the noise.

Then steering rack most likely is about to fail
from not changing the fluid and is causing stiffness
and high pressure thus the noise

Loud whining noise sometimes after driving for a


Not really expensive just messy to repair. Return lines (low pressure) are much more common and they travel along the frame rail on the right side of the subframe from the power steering rack to the cooler line in front of the radiator. The high pressure line starts at the pump and travels over the top of the motor to the back side (it's a thick line with a big banjo bolt at the pump). They go too but less frequently.

If it's the return line and not the pressure line you can cut it and put some rubber hose from the parts store over the cut part with a couple clamps and that'll hold you for quite a while till you can get the line and get it installed.

The return line, done correctly, can be a bit of a bear on the ground but it's fairly quick in the air on a lift at a garage. The pressure line isn't too bad and can be undertaken by the home mechanic.

Whining noise when turning steering wheel. Power teering fluid is ok. any suggestions.


It is probably the belt slipping around the pulley on the power steering pump.
Just have that replaced and it should be fine.

Hope that helps,

I have a high pitched noise which appears to be coming from front right engine compartment (as you are looking at the engine) which sounds kind of like a belt that is squealing. It is intermittent. Just...


Could be several things. WHICH ENGINE?.. 4 cylinder (has three belts, power steering/water pump, alternator & A/C compressor, one tensioner pully A/C compressor), The V6 2.7 (has only one belt, 1 Idler pully and 1 tensioner pully), the V6 3.5 has two belts - A/C/alternator, and power steering - there are two tensioner pullys). Noises can be caused by the belt(s) themselves, pullys, bearings, pully bearings, water pump shaft bearings (or belts/pullys rubbing up against something). Let's not forget that there is also belt(s) behind the Timing Belt cover as well as pullys and bearings associated with the timing system. You could start by removing one accy drive belt at a time (alternator, water pump, compressor, power steering, etc) to see whether or not the noise goes away in each case. If after each case, you discover the noise is still there, it's probably behind the timing belt cover (idler/tensioner pully, water pump shaft bearing, crankshaft bearing, etc.). Good Luck

Whining Noise


Sure sounds like a power steering pump, if they did not flush the grim out of the system from the old pump before they replaced the pump the new pump will fail in short order.
