There is a whining sound when I turn the wheal. Im guessing this is power stearing but I am not positive. I am trying to figure out what the problem could be and what I might need to do to fix it. I am trying to save money by doing repairs by my self.

    I just took my 2008 Liberty Sport in for a suspected power steering noise as it also started "whining" like yours. The fluid was low but they also found that the power steering rack was leaking and needs to be replaced. Luckily, I bought the extended warranty and only have to pay the $150 deductible for a $900 repair. I would suggest checking the fluid to begin with.
