05 accord makes a whinning noise when i accelarate gets louder then stops when i am stopped


Sounds like low power steering fluid or air in the steering system.To fill up and get the air out faster,it's easier to elevate the front wheels.Fill up the resevoir,and turn the wheel full left,wait 30 seconds,then turn slowly to the right,wait 30 seconds,repeat(and keep an eye on the fluid level)(note:do these lock to lock turns with the engine off-this allows air bubbles to rise up in the resevoir and dissipate,instead of churning through the lines and steering rack)

I have a 5series bmw. the power steering on the car is fooked. for the last 3 or so days there has been a little whinning noise as i drive and when i turn corners it seems to worsen. it stopped working for...


If the fluid was completely empty, you may still have air in the system. Whining is not good. It means low fluid and could burn out the power steering pump in short order. Turn off the car, Add fluid (DON'T OVER FILL), start the car, turn the wheel a LITTLE bit right and left a couple times to get the air out. Shut off the car, recheck fluid, add and repeat until full. If you still have the whining and no Power Steering, you are FOOKED...

My 1997 pontiac Grand prix power sterring is gone and hard to turn i think it might be the pump or sterring whell fluid but cant find it help me please


You might want to check the power steering fluid. The resevoir is on the passenger side toward the passenger seat it is kind of hard to find. But i have a '97 Grand Prix and i noticed that whenever i would turn sharp while going pretty fast it would make a grinding noise and i could feel my steering wheel pulling me. But the thing is the power steering never whinned or anything. So i checked it and there was absolutely none in there. So check the fluids first.
