Hello, the whining noise the old pump had is aeration usually from low fluid level that will damage the pump, that means there is a leak of fluid. This system is a closed type system no leaks allowed. First check the condition of the hoses, should be clean, dry and no visible cracks. You need to check the output of the new pump, if that’s good. Next step would be an issue with the steering rack itself. If you’d like, a certified Your Mechanic Technician can come to your location and check the pump and steering assembly.
