    It sounds like the power steering pump , but not sure going to change it anyway let you know what happens

    Do you hear it when you turn to? Add fluid to your power steering reservoir. Its a pain to reach but its there. Look behind your engine in the gap between the windshield wipers and the engine. its a little ways down, but you'll see the lid. Refer to your owners manual for help finding it.

This is definitely a power steering problem. I had this same problem about a year ago. I had to get my Power Steering Rack replaced, this fixed the noise and problem. You can add power steering fluid as a temporary fix, but your problem will not permanently go away. You are probably leaking fluid out of your steering rack.

The sound that you are hearing probably happens more often when you are acclerating around a turn, right?? Does it sound like a little foreign car in reverse?? Also, the wheel may be a little stiff when first starting out.

Check for a vacuum or air leak. Possibly a hose or intake manifold. Odd that it runs better on default MAF settings with MAF unplugged, but if no codes indicating a circuit problem, IDK. Could be a vacuum leak.

My 2004 grand prix won't start. All accessories


Make sure your battery is fully charged and all terminals and connections are clean, first. If the car still makes a clicking sound near the starter its your starter selonoid. Some vehicle models allow you to just replace the selonoid and others require a whole new starter. Either way you'll probably have to remove the whole starter to accomplish the repair.

Wind whistle noise


To determine what's making the whistle, try putting some tape over anything that might be causing it. I'd tape over any trim or moldings to try and find out where its coming from. You might try a wide roll of tape over the window edges, and trim points, if the whistle stops, take off a section at a time and recheck until it appears again, and you know what's causing it. Try to keep the tape flat, or you might create some new whistles! Let me know how you do. countrycurt0
