Customer Question

When I start my 2000 Xterra I hear a whining noise. There is no difference in the performance, transmission fluid is full, no problems with steering. It isn't as loud when driving but I still hear it. It just started tonight.
JA: When was the last time your transmission fluid was checked? Changed?
Customer: About six months ago it was checked. About a year and half since changed. I drive less than 10,000 miles a year.
JA: Are you fixing your Xterra yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: My husband checked the transmission fluid tonight and it was full. No, I send my car to a shop. I got a rebuilt transmission 3 years ago.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

From everything I am reading I think it may the power steering pump? While I get answer tonight or later in the morning?

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

Will it make the noise in park?

Does the sound change with the engine reved up?

Does steering all the way left or right effect the noise?
