Your powered steering pump needs checking out as it sounds like a reco pump is needed and the rest of the steering needs a good check over ,but yes do check your fluid as if its low or empty then it can cost you more
It should be checked like the rest of the car every 3000 km same as Battery/Engine oil/Brake fluid/Tyres/ etc ...

Whistle noise


Start the car, open the hood, remove the oil filler cap off the valve cover, if the noise goes away, the problem is in the "positive crankcase ventilation" system (blown diaphragm).

It really sounds like you have a belt that is worn out and slipping. This will cause both of the symptoms you describe. Have the belts checked.

Hi i have a 99 323i e46 i drove it home today and i pushed it to its limit but then the car started to **** and lose power and you could feel the car vibrating inside the cabin. the engine light came on...


Several things but 2 occur to me. did it have ample oil and water, and, did it do this while the rev counter was up high?. The first you can sort, the second, it probably has a rev limiter over which , the engine will not go. Slow it down a bit and it it should be back to normal.

2003 BMW 325i will start but making noise


It might be a faulty power steering pump. Try checking the level of the power steering fluid. It is probably best you have your power steering system checked by a mechanic.

Does the noise occur only when the vehicle is moving?

Try moving the steering wheel from side to side, while stationary (but don't do it too often, or you might damage something). If the noise is still present when the car is stationary, then it probably is the power steering system.

If the noise only occurs while the vehicle is moving, it could be a problem with the differential/final drive, or even wheel bearings.

Make sure you check your power steering fluid... if it's even low, it will make a terrible noise...run it on empty too long and your can ruin your power steering pump.
