There still could be air in steering box. Hold wheel all the way to left and hold for 1 min then all the way to right for one min the system should now have purged all air out. Does sometimes need to be drove to work rest of air out.

    Thanks. It is a bit quieter but did not fix the steering issue. Might be the steering gearbox

Can altenator sound like bad power steering pump?


Many new power steering pumps will exhibit a whining noise for a time after installation. Some won't. Typically, they quiet down within 2-3 weeks once they break in a bit. If the new pump is doing its job and not leaking and the whine is not more like an ear-splitting shriek, just wait it out and see what happens.

Whining power steering pump on 2001 bmw 740il


have you put a different type of power steering fluid?

in some instance, if they put a different type of fluid, the solution bubbles up and makes a whining noise when you use the car.

Whining sound when turning


Please elaborate. Does it happen when stopped and turning the steering wheel, at certain speeds or both?
Does yours have power steering? That was an option for 1990.
First thing that comes to mind is the power steering pump or just low on fluid. Check the fluid level first. Not necessarily in danger of imminent failure but if yours has never been replaced it would be a good idea to get a new one for peace of mind.
One way to check it is to go to drive into a big empty parking lot, turn off the engine (don't turn the key too far as to lock the steering) and make some of the same kinds of turns that typically makes the noise happen. If it still makes the same noise it's NOT the power steering pump and I'm at a loss without more details. If it doesn't whine, then it still could be something with the power steering. With the car running and parked have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth and listen for it under the hood and you should be able to find the source. If you don't know where the power steering pump is I'd suggest getting a service manual. I recommend one from Haynes.

Whining when i press gas


normally, the only part of your automatic transmission that will make a whining noise is the pump. it usually whines when iether the fluid is low or more commonly when the transmission oil filter is getting plugged up.

the power steering pump will also make a whining noise too.

turn the wheel all the way to the right and hold steady pressure against the stop. this puts maximum force on the power steering pump and, if the power steering pump is the one making the whine, it will change the sound of it. (usually louder).

if the trans pump is making the whine noise, it should sound different in neutral compared to drive. this test will really only work if it make the noise without the vehicle moving. if it wont do it at idle hold the rpms at 2000 or so.

if you decide the noise is coming from the transmission, and the transmission filter has not been replaced (assuming you installed a used transmission), replace the filter by removing the oil pan.



oh and also, if it is the power steering pump you should be able to make it make the whining noise while the vehicle is stationary. if it wont make noise unless its moving its not the power steering pump.

Steering difficult(slow) and a whining noise when turning wheel


The whine is most likely your power steering pump. Check the fluid in the pump. If you are low on power steering fluid you may have a leaking hose or fitting or the seals in the pump may have began leaaking. If you continue to run the auto without power steering fluid you will burn up the power steering pump very quickly.

Whining noise in engine


Checking the level of the power steering is a good start. The pump is mechanical, driven by the serpentine belt, and cannot be turned off. Your steering may seem normal but if you let it go, low fluid can destroy the pump.
