Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.
It needs to be inspected to isolate the leak. most of the time it's the high pressure hose, but can also be the P/S pump or rack. They will put a dye in the system to see exactly where the leak is coming from. the whining noise is from the pump being too low on fluid.
