Without actually HEARING the sound you mention, diagnosis is IMPOSSIBLE here. Take it in to service department - pay the diagnostic fee, they'll give you an estimate of repairs (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc). This way you'll know exactly what's wrong and what's required to fix it.

More info - If it only makes the noise when the car is moving its probably a wheel bearing - if it makes a whining noise whether its moving or not it sound like the power steering pump is on its way out - it could be as simple as adding fluid - start the vehicle and while sitting there turn the wheel left and right - the noise should get louder and softer - if it doesnt - its one of the other accessories - a/c pump or the alternator itself -

Humming sound coming from engine told it was the alternator


This noise could be the alternator, water pump, power steering pump, idler pulley or tensioner pulley. Sometimes an automotive stethescope is used to isolate noises around the engine.

Engine whine


It could be any of the pulleys on the engine. Water pump, ac compressor,alternator, idler, or power steering pump. I would say that it is more than likely the power steering pump wining. That would be my first suspect

Where is the power steering temperature sensor on 1993 Toyota Camry v6


On some Camrys the radiator fan is run by hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump. I think the sensor you mention is the engine coolant temperature sensor, which is in the circuit which operates the fan when the engine becomes hot. If this fails the engine will overheat, yes. The fan does not cool the hydraulic fluid from the pump.

If your power steering fluid gets low the same thing can happen, but you would notice immediately as the steering would become intermittently harder.

When i turn engine the full dash lights come on as per the norm however engine justs clicks and wont start then when driving the engine cuts out steering becomes impossible


sounds like a bad alternator. have it tested after you jump start it. once the engine dies it is no longer turning the power steering pump so yes the steering would be very difficult. have the battery tested first.

Loud engine whine (like a jet noise) from 2002 subaru forester


Have you crawled under the vehicle and personally inspected your exhaust line from manifold to tail pipe? The roaring sound usually occur when there is a hole in the exhaust line. I had it happen to my forester before. A hole half the size of a dime made my subaru sound like my old 74 chevy pickup.
