Check the rubber elbow attached to the PCV valve. My 1999 Buick Century just started humming this week and I finally found that the rubber elbow conecting the PCV valve to the vacuum hose had collapsed (age wear?) It kind of sounds like when you let the air out of a balloon by pulling the sides of the fill tube, only much lower in pitch and a steady note.
You probably need to top off your power steering fluid first. If the problem contiues then yes, it probably does need to be replaced.
It is very hard to turn the steering wheel and/or a whining or squealing noise when you turn the steering wheel.
No, my steering is fine.
I'm almost positive that the problem is a left or right wheel bearing. Replace BOTH. Easy and inexpensive.

Make certain that your serpentine belt is adjusted properly. If that isn't the problem, make sure the power steering is functioning properly.
If it only happens when you accelerate the most likely cause is an axle.
Your 2000 kia sportage would not accelerate and eventually went dead what could the problem be?
The problem may be in the switch, to test the accelerate portion you need a multi meter. Remove the steering column cover to gain access to the wire connector for the multi switch. Test for continuity between the top left connector pin ( flat side of connector is down ) and the bottom right when the switch is activated in accelerate. If there is continuity the the switch is good and the problem is in the ASCD control module. If no continuity is detected then replace the multi switch.
Could be tie rod or steering gear problem.

You might want to check your power steering fluid
If the heater blower has humming noise when motor is running, first check its capacitor. If the capacitor is fine, then the motor is the problem and may need to be replaced.

Typically, it may start to make a fairly loud humming noise, especially when turning the steering wheel (a little noise is sometimes normal). It may also 'pulse' when turning the wheel or while driving straight. While turning, steering may intermittently become stiff and then easy. The power steering fluid reservoir may be low (this should be checked regularly and never be allowed to run low). Power steering fluid leaks may be present (check for spots under the vehicle and/or 'wet' power steering lines and components). Also, many shops can help diagnose the problem for little or no cost. Try and find one you trust and take advantage of their expertise.
You either have no/low power steering fluid in your car, or there is some other problem with the power steering, such as a leak in the tube.
The problem is probably in the steering gear. Clogged passages in steering gear. Leaks in steering gear.
I have a 2006 Ion - the power steering went out. My dealer said that this was a common problem - Saturn was working on a recall. They took care of replacing the steering column - no charge.

The answer to this question depends on where the problem is in the steering system. The most common problem I have had with Craftsman riding mowers is the "support shaft" at the bottom of the steering column. As you turn the wheel look down the shaft and see where all the play is. The ball joint comes on the steering rod. You will need to purchase a new steering rod.
Ive read that most Taurus cars have a faulty pulleythat the serpentine belt runs through which makes irritating noises such as squeaking, humming, tilted steering. It must be replaced to fix the problem. Belt conditioner is a temporary fix however u would have to use it daily. Highly reccomended to just get it replaced. hope this helps.
