Give us some more info. You can check for loose fan belts and check power steering fluid level.
Checked fluid for power steering it was low replaced with synthetic as recommended. Belts are fine. It is like a whirrrr, almost sounds like the supercharger is louder than before but when hood is open it's hard to determine where it is coming from. Wondered if it might be alternator, but charge is good.
