Question about 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe
Have a 2002 hyundai santa fe that has developed a loud whining noise sometimes after driving for a while. Thinking perhaps it is power steering problems. husband checked and said looks like high pressure line is leaking but that pump appears ok. Expensive parts for this car. Any suggestions???
Not really expensive just messy to repair. Return lines (low pressure) are much more common and they travel along the frame rail on the right side of the subframe from the power steering rack to the cooler line in front of the radiator. The high pressure line starts at the pump and travels over the top of the motor to the back side (it's a thick line with a big banjo bolt at the pump). They go too but less frequently.
If it's the return line and not the pressure line you can cut it and put some rubber hose from the parts store over the cut part with a couple clamps and that'll hold you for quite a while till you can get the line and get it installed.
The return line, done correctly, can be a bit of a bear on the ground but it's fairly quick in the air on a lift at a garage. The pressure line isn't too bad and can be undertaken by the home mechanic.

Try replacing the power steering fluid and replace the filter in the pump hosing, if the high pressure hose is leaking replace it as well. the hose can colaspe inside and make it hard to steer and will not deliver enough fluid for the power steering.The reason I say this is the pump is whining so it has high pressure build up. Aslo the return line could have colasped but dout it.
