Check the level in the power steering fluid reservoir. You most likely need a top up. The noise is caused by the pump effectively pumping air through the system. Top up to the level marked in the reservoir then turn on the engine and move the steering wheel around for a wile then turn off an re top up to the level marked in the reservoir and all should then be OK. Make sure you use the correct fluid for the car – usually a Red Dexron Hydraulic Fluid.

Power sterring noise


Check your power steering fluid level. If low will cause unit to whine when turning left or right. If fluid level has gone very low you will need to bleed system. With car jacked up start engine and turn your steering wheel all the way left then right a few times. Good Luck Friend.

Hard to steer


Can you describe your problem any further? Such as leaking fluid on the ground near the inside of the passenger side wheel or a whining noise of any sort (especially when turning the wheel). Have you checked the powering steering reservoir to make sure its topped up on steering fluid? Also, is there any difference in how hard the wheel is to turn when the engine is running versus when the engine is off? If you are getting a whine noise when you turn the wheel side to side or fluid is leaking on the ground from any of the lines you will get a major decrease in power assistance. If it feels the same as when the engine is not running you could have a power steering pump that has blown a seal. Usually the main seal goes out around the main shaft that holds the pulley and you could possibly see splatter marks on the pulley itself or around the belt.

Cars steering wheel hard turn


I hope you are using the right PS fluid for your vehicle! Have you checked that?

Power steering systems are tricky. Whenever you add fluid, you should (with the engine running and PS pump turning), turn the wheels ALL the way, both left and right while creeping as slow as a snail on an open parking lot ... at least twice (like R-I-G-H-T, then L-E-F-T, then R-I-G-H-T, then L-E-F-T)! Then re-check the PS fluid level again, and if still low, repeat the whole process! DON'T turn the steering wheel too fast!

Whining noise is probably in one of the pulleys or belts. Probably the power steering. And the popping is probably CV axles.

Power steering whine


The bubbles are more or less normal.
I would want to know for sure the noise is coming from the pump and not another pulley on the engine. When you turn the wheels you put load on the pump and the drive belt which loads the other pulleys too.
How about taking a long piece of heater hose and using it to listen around the belt while a helper turns the steering wheel ?

My power steering pump is making a "whining" noise. Why?


First check and make sure it is not low of fluid. If it is top it off with the correct fluid. If you let it get low it may have air in the system. After topping the reservoir off start the engine and turn the steering wheel fully to the left and right 5 times. This will remove any trapped air. If the whining is still there, you need a new power steering pump as it is defective.
