steering whine

I'll let you know what it turns out to be. Thanks again.

Moody715 If its not aligned properly it could even be a little noise from the tire rubbing the ground on its outside when turning right and not when turning left... check the tread and make sure it is wearing evenly and it has no weird worn tread patterns. (More tread on inside than out) or (Outside of tire kind of wavy feeling)

I work at a Shop and mostly people come in saying that and its either that or power steering fluid low. But it rarely turns out to be something else but I would check everything i could.

I wouldn't rule out a worn brake pad and I will check the power steering fluid. Thank you. Any other thoughts out there ?

Jerry Bransford Power steering pump whine? How is the PS fluid level? If it's low, top it off with a little fresh ATF+4 which is what PS systems use starting in 2003.

Whine

Whine from the passenger side while turning......no no don't say it

If it were me I would try and isolate it further. I've had such things as a blower squirel cage with a bad bearing make noise when turning one way but not the other. Another possible issue is a worn brake pad moving out against the rotor while turning and scraping and making a noise. I know not much help but I would not immediately jump to a bad wheel bearing--but that could certainly be the case. Although in my experience a bad wheel bearing usually shows up as a roughness or rumble.

Thanks guys.
