it could be air in your power steering system. check the fluid level and add fluid as needed.then to get the air out all you need to do is turn your steering wheel full left and full right(engine on ) do it 5 times and check your fluid level if is low add more keep it up until the noise goes away.('''it may take about 15-20 full turns to get rid of that noise''')ifafter all this the fluid keeps droping and the noise continues then you have a leak somewhere in the power steering system.

Just a thought.

Friction in the transmission system may cause whining noise when a car is accelerating. A poor engine or clutch assembly may cause the excess friction in the transmission system.

It may be the Idler pulley. I used to have a 96 Breeze with a 2.0L 4cyl that made a whining noise. I thought something might be seriously wrong, but then i discovered it was just the Idler pulley making noise. I changed it-- no more noise.

If the sound is a loud growling , whining, noise you're probably low on power steering fluid. Now the cause of the fluids loss is WHERE ?

== == Could be the transmission, or a front brake is sticking on.

wheel bearing, gearbox or wind noise Supercharger?

It could be low on power steering fluid. That is a common problem. It makes a sharp whining noise when you turn the steering wheel.
