The Power Steering Belt tension requires adjustment, to give it more tension, to cure the slipping, resulting in the squealing, or perhaps renewal, due to cracking or excessive wear.

Your Power steering Belt, belt is your primary problem.

Good Luck !

SOURCE: 2003 dodge grand caravan problems with whining noise. Had power steering Pump replaced. Still whining noise . Louder when turning the steering wheel.

There is a relatively simple solution to the problem you and many others are having. The power steering reservoir contains a mesh screen filter. Over time it will start to plug up and cause the symptom you and many others are having. Replacing the reservoir will 99% of the time resolve the issue. I have done this successfully on many Caravans, Town and Countrys, and Voyagers.

The part is available from you local Dodge dealer.

To remove
1. remove the two screws that hold the reservoir to the intake plenum.
2. Loosen the nut on the backside and under the reservoir. It is in between the coil and the reservoir. a 10mm socket and extension will work.
3. place a bunch of rags under the reservoir to catch the power steering fluid that will spill.
4. remove the two hoses from the reservoir.

After you intsll the new one top of with ATF+4 transmission fluid. This is the only fluid that is recommended for you P/S system by the Dealer. Typically I will flush the power steering system prior to installing the new reservoir to make sure the fluid is as clean as possible in order to get the maximum life from the new reservoir.

hope that helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

How do i fix the whining noise my 2009 kia sorento makes

may be your power steering pump whining. Check fluid first, then if it's up, start the car up and have someone turn the wheel back and forth a few times. Listen to see if there is more or less noise when this happens. Does the noise go away after it warms up?

Lould roring

It would, in the differential on each side, where the axles come in. Does the roaring noise get louder with road speed, and does it seem to come from one side more than the other? If so, it's probably a wheel bearing. Carrier bearings are possible also, but road-speed-dependent noises like that more often turn out to be wheel bearings than carrier bearings.
