Question about 2007 Chrysler Town & Country LX New Cars
The highway for an hour or more. Is this normal or is their a problem? I have had a previous dodge caravan that did not do that.
The noise is the result of a screen at the bottom of the power steering reservoir being plugged and starving the power steering pump. The screen cannot be replaced. Replace the reservoir assembly (about $50 if DIY). Add $100 for labor if you take it in.
Don't let it go, you'll eventually damage the pump.

At this point I guess anything is possible as well as a few other things such as tires. Have you checked to make sure all tire pressures are as required, and tires are in good shape, as well as have you had tires rotated in the last while? Just booting around town or city wouldn't cause tires to heat up as much as steady highway driving where they will increase in pressure from the heat, and perhaps start running on the road differently as far as tread on surface goes. It might be smart to have tires & belts inspected. Stop at a couple of places to see if they both agree as to condition.

Testimonial: "You received a quick response and was helpful in attempting to target the problem. I would recommend for others to use this site. Thank you!"
My 07 makes the same type of whinning noise after being on the road for a while. It sounds like the pwr steering pump of an old ford pickup I used to own. I have not felt the need to investigate any further than checking the fluid level and being annoyed by another Chrysler product.
