Engine whining


check your power steering fluid level. when level gets low low the pump will start to make noise, also in colder weather the fluid becomes thicker and if the pump is starting to fail it will create noise also,

My car is a standard trans. When weather got cooler car started making a whining sound even after car is warmed up.


The fluid is more thick in colder temp. thicker also means lowe level. Check your fluid level in hte cold. Could even be the input shaft bearing howling as well. Does sound match speed or engine speed?

My 2005 altima's steering is stiff. The PS fluid is good. Mechanic changed the serpentine belt that was cracked wondering if that would help, but it didn't. it is making no noise. What should i...


no noise when turning and stiff steering is usually narrowed down to 2 things. a bad power steering pump or bad rack and pinion assembly. the rack and pinion is most of the time leaking fluid when it is bad, but you stated the fluid is good. I suggest to remove the power steering reservoir cap , start the engine and look inside the reservoir. the fluid should be swirling if the pump is working especially when turning the steering wheel. if the fluid isn' t moving then the pump is most likely bad.

I drive a 99 Nissan Altima GXE, the car makes what sounds like a whale's mating call whenever I use the steering wheel. Is this purely a steering fluid a problem? Does anyone else have this issue?


it is hard to say over the internet but check the resovoir bottom for the power sterring and see if there is fluid in there . If not the items that usually leak on that model car is the high pressure power sterring hose which you will see on top next to the firewall, the return hose and the pump itself but it is hard to tell which one because the return hose attaches to the pump and if leaking would make it look like it is the pump.

Noise fron tire nissan altima


Are you check the power steering fluid? If it's a moaning sound, when you're turning the wheel, you're either low on power steering fluid, your pump is getting weak or (most likely) your rack and pinion steering pump is getting weak.

Keep us updated.

Power Steering


First tighten the belt up anyway. It may be so wore out it is slipping just the same. If that cures it then get a new belt.

Noisy power steering on cold start goes away when warm


what type of noise ? if it is squeeling, check the level of power steering fluid, after you are sure the level is up , turn the steering wheel as far as it will go one way and hold it there for a couple seconds... then turn it all the way the other way. that will remove any air in the system.
