Q: Noise

asked by on

Whining noise at idle low speed acceleration and turning just replaced power steering pump

My car has 10500 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hey there:

It’s very common for power steering systems to be low on fluid after a replacement; which could be the source of your noise. However, this noise appears to be closer to a serpentine or drive belt issue; perhaps a pulley that helps to drive these belts that is loose or beginning to wear out. The best way to pinpoint the source of any noise is to have a professional mobile mechanic complete a car is making a noise inspection.
