Whining noise for 3 or 4 seconds when I turn the steering wheel left or right

Maclorjoe here!

I have a 2002 Audi A6 which I just bought that has 138,000 miles on it. Over the last week or two, I have noticed a whining noise which lasts for about 3 or 4 seconds, when I turn the wheel either to the left and/or the right. The power steering fluid is at the proper level, just wondering what might be causing this whining sound -

Could be a little air in the system. Old cure was to idle the engine in neutral and turn the steering wheel full lock to the left and then full lock to the right. Repeat several times. That would "burp" the system. Don't know if it will cure your problem, but it's worth a try.

You might look at the belt condition and tension.
