    Could be the power steering, check the rack, or it could be your brakes, if you don't replace the pads, soon it'll be grinding wheneva u stop. Could also be that something, like a small rock, has got stuck in there somewhere, has anyone done any work on your car recently? I once had a screw in there that my useless ex left behind {of course he knows what he's doing!!! lol}.

    Could be air in the hydraulic system. Try this: with the engine running and transmission in park, turn the steering wheel all the way right then all the way left 2 or 3 times. That has worked for me in the past.

    ok. a dash greater specificity is named for. Is it an exact whine or a loud squeal? you're announcing it happens the two upon acceleration or perhaps as turning. This leads me to have self theory this could be a squeal. this might nicely be the belt. If it grew to alter into some ingredient to do with the particularly pump, it may be greater of a growling variety sound. To do learn that, pull the disguise off the reservoir and at as at present as turn the educational wheel from area to area with the engine working. See what happens on the reservoir. it particularly is fairly a 2 individual operation. One should be turning it lock to lock area to area on a similar time via fact the various looks. Is it bubbling or foaming? Or does the return seem air loose? Is there any noise as quickly as you have the engine idling and you in simple terms turn the wheel slowly, or in user-friendly terms start to instruct it? I save coming lower back to the "advance up" factor of your description. It actually looks like a belt undertaking. learn it. See in spite of if that's badly cracked or looks awesome. If the two, replace it. additionally, learn the tensioner. in spite of if that's an adjustable one, tighten it some.

    check your power steering. If that is not it go to a autozone or something similar and some will do a free diagnostics test.

    ps. my husband says to check the steering alignment
