Hi, this sound is most likely coming from the power steering pump. I would first, check the power steering fluid level to see if it is full. if its not at the full mark, add some fluid. If the fluid reservoir is full upon inspection and the whining continues, the pump may be damaged and the pulley on the power steering pump could be slightly out of sync with the pump housing.

The second issue could be belt slippage. i would do a tension check on the drive belt and pulleys as well. make sure there isn't any ware and tare on the belt and make sure the tension is to specs.

Please rate and god bless:)

Does the whining sound like it's coming from the power steering? This usually is an indication that the power steering fluid level is low.

Whining noise


Could be a few things:

Belt slipping- adjusted through tensioning bolt on bottom of power steering pump

Pulleys- take off belt and hand turn pulleys. Find one that gives resistance and possible makes the whining noise. It's probably the idler pulley.
