    2001 power steering noise in cold

    hi guys, -12 read on the dash this morning and for the most of the 4 mile journey to work i noticed a louder than normal whining sound, definitely coming from the power steering pump, it stopped when i turned the wheel and came back when the wheel was centered, the steering however was fine,

    this is the first time ive noticed this, is this normal in the cold? or should i be looking at getting the fluid changed?

    many thanks

    Check the fluid levels initially, I've not seen this discussed on here before and mine doesn't do this (touch wood, yada yada) and never has in 8.5 years of ownership.

    cheers buddy i've just checked the level and it looks like it needed another quarter in there, certainly not reading on the dipstick,

    i've just topped it up and bled the system and it seems spot on now,

    hopefuly thats that sorted!

    thanks again
