View Full Version : Steering Whine?

My steering has been making a whining noise for a while now. Last week my power steering pump went. I got that fixed and thought the noise would be gone but it is not. Any ideas what this noise is??

this may not be the answer your looking for but ... cars tend to make funny noises at times when it gets to -50 outside. Trust me mine does.
*for some of you from the south .. yes i did say -50 that was not a mistake *

Did you bleed the system when you changed the pump?

If not, you may just have some trapped air in the system and it always takes a while before it completely purges itself (even with a flush).

Also, Clyde is right, with the cold weather cars tend to make strange noises.

Sit in the driveway with the car running and turn the wheels lock to lock at least a 1/2 dozen times. This should force out any air bubbles in the system.
