The noise comes from the belt, or from the power steering pump when you move the steering wheel?
If is first option the belt is too loose.
If is the second one, maybe you have low oil in steering pump or the steering pump is faulty.
Please reply.

What is making this 08 caliber 2.0L sxt cvt have a High pitched whining sound at idle and driving?


Possible bearing in one of the drive pulleys. I have changed numerous alternators for this noise. Take the belt off and start the car. If the noise goes away you know it will be pulley related and not transmission related. If noise goes away, spin all pulleys by hand to determine the defective/noisy one

Why does my power steering have a loud noise when turning/


you likely have a leak in your power steering system and is now low. When the fluid gets low it gets air in it causing the whine. It is likely your steering gear or high pressure hose (or both) that is leaking. Once the leak is repaired it is recommended to flush out your power steering fluid to DEX6 Transmission fluid.

2004 dodge ram 1500 power steering problem


this problem is evident in vehicles that have a strut suspension
at the top of the strut there is a plate that is the top plate for the suspension coil spring
above that plate in the rubber bush is a bearing
if that bearing has failed then the plate will not turn and when you turn the steering wheel the power steering is in effect winding up that coil spring
that makes low speed turning very heavy on the power steering system especially at low rpms
have the front suspension checked for that bearing failure ( both sides ) by an accredited suspension specialist shop
standing stationary and turning the wheel you may even hear a creaking or groaning noise as the spring is flexing on the strut
if you do not have a strut suspension , take it to a power steering specialist shop for a proper diagnosis

It has power steering. Why does it steer so hard?


Do you hear noises while turning the wheel at low speeds or stationary? If you hear a whining noise check the power steering fluid level. A low fluid level would make a whining noise as well as cause stiff steering. If you hear a squealing noise check the power steering belt tension. A slipping belt would cause stiff steering also. If you hear no abnormal noises check to make sure the power steering belt is there. If all of the above check out ok you may have a bad power steering pump, steering gear or a blockage in a pressure line.

Whining noise when temperature is below 0 on 2005 f150


A whining noise when it is extremely cold outside is usually caused by the power steering pump due to the fluid being real thick at low temperatures. This noise usually goes away as the vehicle warms up and the fluid thins out.

Whining noise when engaging 1st or reverse.


i had a nissan pickup that would whine in all gears except 4th...it started out with 1st then reverse then went to the rest...solution was new transmission...or rebuild cause the syncronizers or the gears them selves are being chewed up...the new transmission was cheaper then a rebuild. or take it to somewhere that will do free diag on the transmission.

Miata whines only when accelerating


Have you tried to narrow the noise location. is it comming from the transmision safety plate? is it comming from the belts, or a pully? Have someone litely step on the gas and try to reproduce the noise while not in gear. If possible locate the noise, or narow it down to some sort of location. There are just to many variables to say what it is at this point.

Let net me know once you get more info
