Sounds like the power steering pump has failed.
You could take the serpentine belt off and check the pump pulley.

Squelling undrehood on right side ,changed tersioner pully new belt,new water pump,


Make sure your alternator and power steering pumps are turning freely. I personally have never seen a power steering pump lock up, but it could. I have, on the other hand seen numerous alternators freeze up because of bad bearings. Either one would cause a "squalling" sound as the engine runs and tries to rotate the belt over a pulley that isn't turning.

Car is running high oil pressure between 60 to 80. it runs it always high and kinda makes a whining noise. its a camaro ss 2002


The oil pressure is normal. A whining sound could come from anywhere on the vehicle from the power steering, alternator, auto transmission, the water pump or even the air conditioner. It could be the power steering pump. Check this by moving the steering wheel back and forth. This will put load on the system and it will increase the whining if it is the problem.

My 98 Buick Le Sabre's power steering stopped working. Car ran okay and was able to get to gas station. My car is now at 64,000 miles exactly when a clunking noise first happened, then a whining sound...


You maybe blew a hose, did you notice power steering fluid running on the ground? Did you check the fluid level, did the belt come off? You may have to have it towed to a shop, there could be a problem with the rack and pinion.

Squeaking noise comming from Tensioner


Usually (and I say this without having heard it myself), the noise is caused by a loose or worn out belt in the engine. The best thing is to have it looked at, or if your not worried and you think the belt is fine, buy some belt lubricant at your local automotive
