It may not be the pump its self it could be just the belt or the pulley, if it is whining. if its grinding then that would be more that the pump is faulty of it may have air in the system.

When I turn my wheel either left or right it makes a loud whinning noise, and when I turn it, the powersteering fluid seems to leak out?


You have a bad Power steering Pressure hose. The whine is a lack of power steering fluid at the rack, and to continue to drive it this way will destroy the rack and pinion unit.

1998 ford Taurus Whining Noise


Does this noise lessen as you drive at high speeds?
Is the noise present at all gears including park and reverse?
Either purchase a stethoscope at Autozone or use a very long screwdriver place it behind water pump,alternator and a/c pulley and listed for the whining noise. Where ever you hear it with the scope / screwdriver is the problem.
If you don't hear anything at the described pulleys then get all four wheels off the ground, get on a creaper and place whatever your using as a listening device on the transmission . If its comming out of here its the pump inside the torque converter . If its not and the only time its happening is when your driving it could be wheel bearings (not likely because they grind and howl). The same with axle's except if the boots are torn. this may be your problem. I think its the transmission. Good luck

Power steering pump


Whining may be normal.
Pulling fluid from reservoir may be normal.
But I would not expect the fluid to go back to the reservior when you stop.
Is it?
If so, you may have some trapped air or something.
Jack the wheels off the ground, and go lock to lock on the steering, several times, to bleed any air out.

03 Windstar makes a whining noise when idling and turning. Sounds like it is coming from steering column. Power steering fluid level is good.


When you checked the power steering fluid level were there any indications of excessive foaming? There are three things that would cause a whining noise from the power steering. 1- low fluid (you checked that so that is not the culprit), 2- loose steering drive belt (you should not be able to press down on the belt more that about one inch between the steering pump pulley and the crankshaft pulley), 3- power steering pump bearing worn out.

Making noise when turning steering wheel but no leakage


The power steering pump that is used in your car is notorious for noise issues, it is a loud whine which gets louder as you turn the steering wheel right or left, flush the system fluid and replace the pump.
