    That's the noise it makes. It's perfectly OK unless, that is, it's really loud

    Could need something as simple as the old power steering fluid draining out, and some new fluid putting in. That usually does the trick

    is it like a whining noise as my motor does the same - only noticable when idle, and stops when you turn the steering wheel..?
