I have a 2009 Buick Lacrosse. After a year of driving with no issues, it has a very loud whining noise every time I crank it and never stops until I turn off engine. Does it in drive and park and at all...


The most common source of the whine is the power steering pump is low on fluid or the pump is defective. Check the owner's manual for instructions on how to check the fluid in the pumps reservoir.

What could be wrong with the power sterring if it makes a loud noise. after checking poer sterring fluid


The most common problem with noisy power steering (whining noise) is that the power steering pump is defective. If you replace the pump make sure you flush the system with clean PS fluid or it can ruin the new pump.

My 52 mini suddenly started making a whining noise, its an automatic, i didnt get any any warning it ciasts fine and reverses but once you put your foot on the accelorater the whining noise slows the car...


Check your transmission fluid level, as recommended in the Owner's Manual. Also, if your car is equipped with power steering, check the fluid level in the power steering reserve.

If all fluids are at recommended levels, see if you can locate the noise. If it is in the engine compartment, try to determine if the noise is coming from any of the serpentine belt pulleys.

Sometimes the bearings on air injector pumps fail in higher-mileage vehicles, first causing a "whining" noise, and ultimately resulting in the serpentine belt "chirping" or squealing on acceleration. Best you can do is make sure all fluids are at recommended levels, then try to pinpoint the source of the whining noise for further diagnosis.

Hope that's helpful!.

Fluid over flowing after new pump install


just let it idle and fill till its full. it may take a while to bleed air out. turn it off and let it set a while, when the fluid is clear, adjust the level till its at the full mark.

03 Windstar makes a whining noise when idling and turning. Sounds like it is coming from steering column. Power steering fluid level is good.


When you checked the power steering fluid level were there any indications of excessive foaming? There are three things that would cause a whining noise from the power steering. 1- low fluid (you checked that so that is not the culprit), 2- loose steering drive belt (you should not be able to press down on the belt more that about one inch between the steering pump pulley and the crankshaft pulley), 3- power steering pump bearing worn out.

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?


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.
