No, not really. In fact, It is the worst when I am turning into a parking spot at low speed. The engine would be idling at 5-700rpm's and a lot of steering action. It will chatter grind when I just spin the wheels while sitting still also. However, the quick whine only occurs when I'm going 20-30 mph. Don't know if these two issues are even related.
One crazy guess that I had was the rack and pinion is failing and sending junk thru the pump, causing it to fail and is what caused the first one to fail. But, Don't know if that's a good guess, because I can't see any junk in the fluid.
The new pump has 1000 miles on it at most. I put it in myself, it a rebuilt model (has a warranty on it) from O-reilly. I feel the chatter in the steering system. (mainly steering wheel) It can also be felt as the frnt. wheels kind of jerk as they turn. Auto trans.
Okay, I know what you are talking about. I will do that and get back to you. I am a college student, I have class soon, but will get back to you later today. Thanks!
