2002 kia optima,,, whining noise that stops when turning left


power steering pump probably went out.. if you can easily get at the belt and are any kind of mechanically inclined, remove the drive belt to the p/s pump and then start the car if the noise is gone then its probably part of the power steering pump

Change belts on 2002 kia optima


Not sure what engine you have , but I had an 02 rio with the 1.5 L . The serpentine belt did not have a tensioner (spring loaded) pulley , the belt tightness was adjusted by pivoting the alternator mount.
If you are takling about the Timing belt , the tensioner pulley wont move (even though it is on a spring ) untill you loosen the bolt in the center.

Tension bolt


It has to be located just above the belt near the power steering pump. Common sense will let you know that the tension bolt will tighten or lossen the belt.
