If the fluid was completely empty, you may still have air in the system. Whining is not good. It means low fluid and could burn out the power steering pump in short order. Turn off the car, Add fluid (DON'T OVER FILL), start the car, turn the wheel a LITTLE bit right and left a couple times to get the air out. Shut off the car, recheck fluid, add and repeat until full. If you still have the whining and no Power Steering, you are FOOKED...
Look inside the reservoir while the car is running and see if it is low. If it is turn the car off and add power steering fluid. You can purchase at a gas station or parts house. Some people use transmission fluid but it is not a good Idea because it can cetch on fire if you have leak in your power steering system. You can look for leaks when you have someone steer the car fom side to side. Make sure you turn the wheel tight so the whinng is at it's loudest. Check your power steering hoses and rack and pinion,etc. Hope this helps leave a comment.
