    Power steering issue

    I was driving my TA yesterday and I noticed that when I was turning, there was a whining noise coming from the power steering box. I started looking around and noticed a spot in my driveway where it must have been leaking, so I put some power steering fluid in and the whining noise is still there. My car has just under 120,000 kms on it and I just lowered it about a week ago. Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it?

    Sounds like your pump is going out, especially if it still whines with full fluid. I had a pretty good sized leak a while back, ended up being the high pressure hose, BUT the whining would stop after I topped off the reservoir. I went ahead and replaced the pump as well, just because I have over 200k on my car and I had to take crap apart anyway.

    Double-check your reservoir, if it is full and still whining consistently, I would replace the pump. And check your hoses for any signs of leakage.
