    power stearing noise

    I've been looking on the internet and in my book but wasn't really sure what it is my guess is low fluid but when I turn its best described as an electrical noise. I've never toped up power steering before so I wanted to know which one it was. Is it the green one? And where can I get more fluid halfords or should I go to vauxhall

    Is it like a whirring noise when you turn the wheel? Quite loud inside the car when idling?

    If so, its just the powersteering pump, they're quite loud, especially on mine, but my dad serviced mine when i got it and its fine!
    Also the high pitched noise that you hear when you switch the engine off

    Steering wheel is rubbing on something. Nothing to do with the power steering.
