Flush the system with seafoam. Seafoam is an additive that works to make power steering pumps quieter.

SOURCE: whining power steering pump on 2001 bmw 740il

have you put a different type of power steering fluid?

in some instance, if they put a different type of fluid, the solution bubbles up and makes a whining noise when you use the car.

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: Power steering pump is clicking and whining

It seems who ever did the work may have removed the power steering pump to access the water pump and timing belt. After refilling they failed to bleed the air out or possibly left a return hose loose causing the pump to **** air hence the bubbles. The brown color in the fluid may indicate they have reused dirty fluid to refill the pump. Unfortunately if you have driven any distance with the air in the pump it will most likely need to be relaced.I would call the place who did the work and register a complaint.

The power steering pump shaft may have broken inside the pump. I have seen this happen on a these trucks. Have your pump checked.

I have a 98 ford f150 thats sounds like a power steering whine, but the reservior is full and the steering i working fine. It only whines when you get the rpm above 1500 when it shifts it goes away. ive...


Sounds similar to my Sable.. I was told that it is the power steering pump making the whine and that if I couldn't stand it, I'd have to have it changed.. Other than the whine, it works just fine.. SO, it's whined for about 10 years, now..

Whining when i press gas


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.

1997 buick lesabre steering locks up & can't turn left & whining


very possible that the pump has failed (seized ) internally so get it checked out at an accredited power steering specialist shop
if it does not produce pressure then the steering will lock or be extremely heavy to turn

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.
