My 1999 dodge Intrepid makes a loud whining noise (like a power steering pump) any time it is running... Any ideas on what it could be?

    You have checked & topped up steering fluid & checked belt? Does it get louder when turning wheels?

If the winning noise gets louder when you turn the steering wheel, it is the power steering pump.
99 to 04 intrepids have a serpintine belt with a self tightner.what i did with mine is **** the old power steering fluid out with a shop vac.replaced half with new fluid and top up with a transmission/power steering fluid additive.the noise went away after a couple of days.

The sound is the belts. Usualy the power steering belt is the one to blame. Do you hear the sound the most when you start the car and it's still cold? If so just tighten the belts and your set.

Transmission whines in 2000 dodge intrepid 2.7


If you are sure the transmission is the source of the whine then it would be caused by a part called the planetary gear pack inside the transmission. I would have this noise diagnosed by a transmission repair shop technician, most will do the preliminary diagnosis for free before you go and put a transmission in it. Most whining noises are not transmission related but are caused by a defective power steering hydraulic pump. Bottom line be sure before you replace any parts.

Sounds like a combination of a power steering pump (whine) AND the CV axle (loud clunk noise). Check the fluid level in the power steering pump. The pump is located on the passenger's side towards the firewall. Kind of hard to get at but unscrew the cover and there is a small/short dipstick there. See what it reads. Add Power Steering fluid (NOT transmission fluid, as needed. Don't overfill)
I'd get the "thumping noise" taken care of IMMEDIATELY. Could be a serious problem. Qualified front end shop should be able to diagnose and give you an estimate of cost. Last time I had one done it was about $300 parts and labor...
