Whining sound when starting car and turning wheel. Power steering fluid was empty. Getting estimates to repair it.
I had a severe leak in the power steering hose. I had to replace the fluid every 3 days. Once the hose was replaced I've had no more issues.
any time I take a turn too quickly or too sharp, my engine makes this awful squealing noise and it won't stop until I have completed the turn. I've had it looked at and had the hose(s) replaced. The noise went away and I thought it was fixed, but the problem (and noise) started again after about 5 months.
