A whinning noise while turning is an indication of a worn bearing. The extra pressure put against the bearing/race during the turn and the closing of a gap creates this noise.I would chech the axle bearings on the side of the truck on the outside the curve when you hear it. What I'm saying is if you hear it when you turn left....check the right side bearing

SOURCE: whinning noise in rear end on 99 dodge ram truck

Not terrible of a job to do. You will have to jack up the rear end and support it on stands and be sure to chock the front wheel so it does not roll forward while jacking it up. Remove the rear wheels and the drum assembly or rotor if disc brakes. Remove the rear differential cover be sure to have a drain pan to catch the fluid that comes out of it. Find the center carrier you will see a pin about 3/4 of inch in diameter going throught the center carrier with a bolt on one end remove the bolt turn chunk until pin comes out. Push the axle in enough to let the c-clip to be removed then pull out the axle. You will then have access to the axle seal and axle bearing. You will probably need a bearing puller with slide hammer to get bearing out. Then put back together.

Hi,
If the sound is coming from your power steering pump and the fluid level is good, the pump could be going out.

Thank you for getting back to me. I would like you to check your transmission fluid. start the engine and let it warm up at idle speed for about 15 min and check the fluid. It sounds like you do not have enough in it, there for the whining noise with increase of speed since your transmission is speeding up with the rate of your vehicle. If this does not help and the problem persist please let me know. If the noise you were hearing was coming from the u joints of the vehicle it would not make a whining noise with increase of speed. The u joints will only make a noise when they are going bad when the vehicle is shifted into any gear from the shifter( EX: park to drive, park to reverse ECT.)

How too do the bleeding of power steering pump on 2007 Jeep compass?


Bleeding a power steering pump in general is just by moving the steering wheel from end stop to end stop. Do not keep it at the end stop for a prolonged time, because it will put a lot of stress on the pump and lines. Keep an eye on the power fluid level, because when air comes out, the level will drop.

Have whining noise in rear end sounds like power steering noise, when turning left or slowing down


I would check the carrier bearing on the drive shaft. If that is Okay what you have described would suggest a bearing in the rear end. But I would check both sides wheel bearings. for leakage if one side is leaking it might just be a bad bearing on one side or the other.

Whinning noise when engine is off


Whinning Causes
The whining noise you hear coming from the power steering pump is one of three things. The first is more of a loud "hush" than a whine; this is the sound of fluid rushing through the bypass valve when you turn the wheel all the way to one side or the other. Sometimes the bypass valve malfunctions or doesn't open all the way, causing pressure to back up in the pump and cause your engine rpm to drop. The second and third causes result from cavitation -- vacuum pockets created behind the rotor's vane blades as a result of extremely high pump action -- or air in the lines.

New power steering pump put in, lines bleed, and still having whinning noise. Is there another part with the power steering pump we can check?


are you sure the noise is comming from pump and not the belt tension pulley right next to it ?

I use a wiffle ball bat with both end caps cut off (hollow tube) held to my ear to help localize noises on running engines I have even found tricky intake vac leaks with that trick
