Pump is the Whine

That doesn't mean it is bad

More likely the rack is restricted

I would first try flushing the system

Remove the return line at the pump,pull out
injector fuses & crank motor,oil goes into bottle
under car.

Use correct p/s fluid & add some Lubgard Brand
p/s Additive.

Need good lower ball joints & upper strut bearings also
or you load the steering system,any tight suspension joints

    My 2008 SX4 is also making the same type of noise during this cold time of the year. The fluid levels are fine so I would like to flush and replace the fluid. Can you tell me where the return line is and also where I can find the injector fueses? Thanks

Its possible that you have two choice to check:
- Ignition Lock cylinder go to bad (located in the ignition switch)
- Neutral Safety Switch adjust (located on top trans)

Additionally, check wiring and harnesses connections. Keep us updated.

Whining noise on Volvo 240 when in neural and park


A common cause of a whining or buzzing type noise when not in gear (neutral and park) is a WORN PUMP in the transmission. How many miles are on the car??

A noisy pump is just noisy and won't cause a breakdown until it becomes MUCH louder. If the noise is not that loud at this point, just keep driving it for now, and chalk it up to normal wear & tear. But DOOO make sure your transmission fluid is topped off. The amount of fluid between the LOW and FULL marks is about one pint. DON'T overfill OR allow it to get below the LOW mark. Transmissions are VERY fluid-level-sensitive.

When your power steering pump goes out does it lock up your steering wheel


I doubt it.
Usually when the pump fails it smokes the belt.
If the steering wheel will not turn and the fluid is contaminated, I would say the problem is the gear box or rack and pinion depending on the make model and year.

Hi,i have just bought Audi A496 1.8Ltr and power steering makes whining noise but no leak found,please help,thanks & cheers.


if it is whining -- then this is a sign that you need to add power steering fluid to the reservoir.
there will be a hot and cold line on the small dip stick in the reservoir,, it is best to fill while the system is cold,, fill to the cold line and this should stop the whining.

I had the same problem with my 98 Cadillac Deville. I changed the power steering pump and the hose that runs to the rack. The problem was solved, loud noises and whining stopped.

Could be either a loose belt or you are low on power steering fluid,or the power steering pump could just be worn out.
