Asked by Feb 21, 2014 at 11:25 PM about the 2000 Ford Mustang Base Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

so my 2000 mustang makes a whining noise as well when I turn the steering wheel, it is
at its worst when when I am turning the steering wheel but I can still hear it if I get close
the engine were the steering pump is located. A mechanic I know wasn't worried about it
and said it was because there was a little bit of air in the power steering fluid, getting rid of
some of the air helped but it did not get rid of it though. any ideas?

Could be a worn power steering pump or rack & pinion unit. Or just low on power steering fluid. When adding fluid don't use automatic transmission fluid!! It will damage the system. Use only power steering fluid! HTH. -Jim

You're welcome. Glad to help. -Jim

Loose belt or check alternator. It could be weak battery causing alternator to work harder.
