    My 2004 Hyundai Elantra has had a whine since I bought it. It sounds
    like a loose fan belt whine, but, it's been checked numerous times and
    I've been told the fan belt's fine.

    If I turn the steering wheel all the way to the left or right, it makes
    this whine, then it goes away. I don't have any troubles at all with
    steering.

    In the cold weather, the car has been making this whine as soon as I
    start it up (without turning the steering wheel), then it goes away.

    I'm taking it back to the dealer (again) to see if they can find the
    source. Any suggestions?

    Thanks, Andrea

  2. Just because the steering is working, does not mean there is not a problem
    with the power steering pump or the valves inside of it. It may be a good
    idea to explain it to the service manager, then leave the car overnight so
    they can start it cold in the morning and listen.

    I'd suspect a loose alternator belt.

  5. That's interesting, since the car doesn't have a fan belt. The fan is
    electric.
    I may be a slipping power steering belt
