Question about 2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Power steering pump and hoses recently replaced
Given the pump is new & probably was replaced for the noise,
& that wasn't the problem,then it is either low on fluid, or the steering
rack is shot & the pressure is making the pump talk to you.
Could also be the reman pump & you may need to install
a NEW GM Pump,think they had that issue also

A power steering pump will whine if it is low on fluid, when you turn the wheels you will hear the whine or if the power steering belt is to tight you will also hear the whine. You will not hear this whine when the truck is stopped.

check for p/s leaks, if no leaks replace pump, raise front wheels off ground and turn steering wheel lock to lock until no air bubbles from p/s fluid before starting engine

Have you checked the level of fluid in the pump? If it is full, you may have damaged the pump with it ran low. Try a Power Steering Lubricant first but if it is full and still making noise it is time to replace.
There are a few models that use the power steering pump at the booster for the brakes, but I doubt that yours is that. Look at the brake master cylinder. If it has this big round black drum, you have a vacuum assist and there is no correlation. If it has a couple of hoses going to an item behind the master that look like the hoses on your power steering there may be a correlation. Most of the diesels had the power steering booster.
Hope this helps

normally, the only part of your automatic transmission that will make a whining noise is the pump. it usually whines when iether the fluid is low or more commonly when the transmission oil filter is getting plugged up.
the power steering pump will also make a whining noise too.
turn the wheel all the way to the right and hold steady pressure against the stop. this puts maximum force on the power steering pump and, if the power steering pump is the one making the whine, it will change the sound of it. (usually louder).
if the trans pump is making the whine noise, it should sound different in neutral compared to drive. this test will really only work if it make the noise without the vehicle moving. if it wont do it at idle hold the rpms at 2000 or so.
if you decide the noise is coming from the transmission, and the transmission filter has not been replaced (assuming you installed a used transmission), replace the filter by removing the oil pan.
oh and also, if it is the power steering pump you should be able to make it make the whining noise while the vehicle is stationary. if it wont make noise unless its moving its not the power steering pump.
