Transmission is low of lube.
Could be a tired power steering pump or simply low on p/s fluid.
A whining noise present when turning the steering wheel indicates a faulty power steering pump. As the pump fails, it allows air to enter the system and a distinct whine.
sounds like a bad power steering pump
It probably needs power steering fluid added.
Depending on the model of vehicle, steering may require more effort due to aeration of the fluid and you may also hear a whining noise from the p/s pump.

First thing that comes to mind is the power steering pump. Ford is famous for whining power steering pumps. The noise should be present whenever the truck is running, but more pronounced when dry steering or increase in rpm.
It is likely to be the power steering pump complaining that the power steering fluid is low.
Low power steering fluid level? Power steering pump going bad?
The belt may be loose or worn.
You may have a power steering problem.
This is your power steering pump failing, I would suggest replacing it sooner rather than later.
Probably your alternater on its way out.
Whining noise near belts had pulleys adjusted any idea what is causing this
It is very hard to turn the steering wheel and/or a whining or squealing noise when you turn the steering wheel.
Whining noises often come from the alternator or the steering pump. Check the power steering fluid in the pump (there is a dipstick on the pump), and have an AVR test done on the alternator. If the alternator is faulty, you are probably having battery problems as well. If the steering pump is low on fluid or is faulty, you probably are experiencing jerky steering from time to time.
Check the power steering pump for the cause of the noise. I sounds like the pump is causing the whining and is either low on fluid or possibly going bad.
check the fluid level in the power steering reservoir and make sure it's where it should be.
most likely low power steering fluid level or the level was low and took out the pump.
You might need to flush your power steering fluid system. What causes this whining or sizzling noise is the hydraulic bar getting stuck which a driver doesn't feels in its rack. or if your car recently visited a ditch or hot a side walk really hard, these factors can effect your steering rack and steering Coulomb.
Usually a bad bearing or loose belt.
Faulty power steering pump, bad power steering fluid, insufficient or excessive power steering fluid.
