2003 Hyundai Santa Fe Question: High pitched whine when engine is cold

I have recently noticed a high pitched whine, acompanied by a definite vibration through the steering column, and a slight shimmy in the front. It abates as the car warms up. Current mileage is 101,000. I have all the original belts yet. -
Answer 1
Hello, Did you find out what was causing the whine noise? Was the power steering fluid level OK? -
Answer 2
Most likely you will need to change your belts and tensioners. The belts are probably so loose that they are slipping. I would change them immedietely since major engine damage could occur -
