The power steering pump shaft may have broken inside the pump. I have seen this happen on a these trucks. Have your pump checked.

If what you hear is a whine, not a belt squeal, then this could be a sign that the power steering pump is going bad. However, before you jump to this conclusion, and if you have not done so already, try flushing the steering system and refill with fresh fluid, as the problem could be due to old or frothy fluid.

Whining when i press gas


normally, the only part of your automatic transmission that will make a whining noise is the pump. it usually whines when iether the fluid is low or more commonly when the transmission oil filter is getting plugged up.

the power steering pump will also make a whining noise too.

turn the wheel all the way to the right and hold steady pressure against the stop. this puts maximum force on the power steering pump and, if the power steering pump is the one making the whine, it will change the sound of it. (usually louder).

if the trans pump is making the whine noise, it should sound different in neutral compared to drive. this test will really only work if it make the noise without the vehicle moving. if it wont do it at idle hold the rpms at 2000 or so.

if you decide the noise is coming from the transmission, and the transmission filter has not been replaced (assuming you installed a used transmission), replace the filter by removing the oil pan.



oh and also, if it is the power steering pump you should be able to make it make the whining noise while the vehicle is stationary. if it wont make noise unless its moving its not the power steering pump.

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.

1999 Silverado Power Steering Stopped Working


When you go and buy the new pump it will come with instructions. the hardest part of the job is the pulley. "don't use a hammer on it or pry on it" It can only be removed with a special P/S puller tool. If you have a Autozone near by you can rent it for nothing. Follow the instructions, press it off, remove the pump, install the new pump, press the pully back on(the face of the pully should be flush with the shaft), fill, purge, and check for leaks.
