Customer Question

Hey everyone, I have a 2001 Lexus ES300... Within the last week, when we start up the vehicle, there is a high pitched whining sound. As I drive, the sound whining pitch goes up, and is still there. It continues to whine even as I come to a stop. Any ideas to what is causing this?

Hi, I would be glad to help you. The noise is coming from your power steering pump is low on fluid. You may have a leak that has caused it to get low on fluid. Look under the vehicle for leaks and fill the power steering fluid.
