Whining noise coming from Belt or Pully's

(2003 Acura TL)
in Kent, WA on August 17, 2010
When I first bought the car in March there was a slight whining noise that would go away after the car warmed up. Now the whining noise is constant. I have sprayed belt lube and the noise doesn't go away. The belt looks brand new. Could this be a pulley problem and if so is the a expensive fix?

My whining noise is from the power steering pump located on the passenger side of the engine. The Power steering pump was replaced under warranty, but appears to be failing again for the second time.

This is common in theses vehicles with the 3.0 L engines. Most ntech will comtinue to replace the pumps under warranty when in fact they should instead replace the O Ring on the inlet line to the pump. This has been know to stop the noise
