that whining noise is definately your power steering pump. the earlier models eg 2001-2003 just have noisy ones. so they say, if that noise become really excessive; its an early warning that its gonna fail. the newer pumps are much quiter, but i was quoted approx 1200+ CND for a new pump. I have a 2003 cooper, and the whining noise is loud. only once has the steering been really stiff, but i resolve that problem by restarting the vehicle. watch out tho, the power sttering could fail on you while your driving around a corner, and if you dont have both hands on the wheel, you'll go strait.

If it occurs as the same rpm, it's either valve chatter, caused by worn valve seals or worn piston rings, or it's your timing chain. If there's slack from a stretched/worn timing chain, it will slap at certain rpms (usually between 1700 & 2000). A qualified nissan mechanic can usually tell the difference by listening to the engine.
