Question about 2001 Chevrolet Impala
Whining should be low power sterring fluid.
Check the power steering dipstick and keep it in the range.
If you have no power steering fluid, automatic transmission fluid ( Dexron) works fine.
Leaks best found with a flashlight, you should not need the engine running, but you will need to get under the car, and you may need to push or bend some of the plastic sheilds out of the way to look.
Most often it is a hose, high or low pressure hose to the power steering pump that leaks.
High pressure hose has fittings, low pressure hose may have a hose clamp.

A power steering pump will whine if it is low on fluid, when you turn the wheels you will hear the whine or if the power steering belt is to tight you will also hear the whine. You will not hear this whine when the truck is stopped.
