Probably not what you want to hear, but...replace the power steering pump if you want to eliminate the whine.

SOURCE: Power Steering Noise

use what the manual suggest to use. it should be standard power steering fluid. do not use ATF. ATF is automatic transission fluid.
you only use this if the manual says to usually only on a merzades.
the wining noise could be the pump breaking it's self in. it will do this for a while untilt he pump is completley broke in and is used to the being used.

Wine in power steering, I put in new fan belt, power steering pump, new rack


The wine will be there until the fluid bleeds out all the air.If it does not,then have the power steering pump replaced again,and be sure to flush the system with a good power steering flush.But the remanufatured pump is most likely the problem.The pump had a flaw that the rebuilder didn`t see.Do make sure the lines are not kinked anywhere.

1996 buick lasabre


A 1996 Buick Lasabre is a front wheel drive (FWD) car, so the front of the motor is facing the front passenger side wheel of the car. That said, the power steering fluid reservoir should be close to the front passenger side wheel tower.

Power Steering pump appears to be leaking but is full????


Just guessing. Could it be a warped brake disk? That would cause vibration. And vibration in steering might conceivably cause splashing out the power steering reservoir. You would know if the disk were warped by a shudder when you brake at hight speeds.
