If you're getting bubbles rising through the reservoir then there is air in the steering system. keep turning the wheel lock to lock until the bubbles cease. then top up as needed. If you get the whine back, do this again, if you continue to get the bubbles coming up then it's fair to assume the steering system is leaking/taking in air somewhere. Try leaving some clean cardboard underneath when you park it overnight to confirm any fluid loss, however small.

Have you checked the steering fluid? for both level and consistency? Leaks?
sounds like you could be getting air in the system. Run it and when it begins to whine, whip the top off the reservoir and turn the wheel slowly lock to lock, check for any bubbles rising.

I have an 02 TJ that I recently bought. After running at highway speeds for more than 30 min or so I get an odd pulsating whine when I am making tight turns. Doesn't do it when I've only been in city. Any ideas?
Thanks
I had this on mine since I bought it, it finally gave out last week. Now I don't have it since I replaced the steering box, but I did find greasing the steering shaft took joints away some of the whining.
Although sounds like you could have some issues with the pump too. Does it whine making all tight turns, or just when she's been running a while?

TNT 02TJ Steering fluid is full and clean. Could it be cavitation after heating up?
