Q: Why is my power steering pump still making a whiny sound.

asked by on

I just recently replaced both my power steering pump as well as the rack and pinion. I have bled the system for about 2 days now and have already drove at least 100 miles since the repair, but it still whines when in low gear. What could causing the issue?

My car has 150000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
