Check the transmission oil level. That sometimes causes a whining sound.
Hope this helps.

Could be one of the belts slipping or worn out. Might even be the water pump bearing. Does the whine increase/decrease as you rev? Whine louder if you suddenly accelerate?

The number one cause of this type of noise is low fluid in the power steering pump reservoir and or the PS pump is defective.

Power steering pump. Fluid is either low or the pump is wearing out.

I can answer some of your questions without being there in person.
The smell inside the van is from fresh air entering the venting system. Not sure why you don't get it from all vents. The fresh air intake is in front of the windshield and will pick up any smells from the engine compartment.
Loosing the serpentine belt would not necessarily cause you to loose ps fluid, but having a leak could drain the pump and damage the bearings in the pump, causing the pump pulley to drag on the belt.
The ps pump could be in the final stage of failing.
And the shaft seal in the pump could be leaking fluid onto the engine and exhaust.

My Nissan Maxima 2001 steering is whining when I turn. What is going on? Do I need new fluid, or do I need to worry about the steering pump? Any help is appreciated... jfsivory


If your fluid is full and it just started doing this, then I would get it checked right away. Yes most likely it is your steering pump going out. Sorry to say, but that is first signs, unless you are low on fluid. Thanks mike

Things to check: Serpentine belt and belt tensioner, power steering pump. And possibly squeal could be from the right front tire wheel bearing. Hope this helps.
