GT JTD engine noise

I have a 1.9 JTD which I mainly use for commuting in to a busy city centre. The majority of my journey is in "stop start" traffic. I notice that after about 5 minutes or so, the engine starts to make a very loud whirring noise which cointinues for the rest of the journey. This does not occur if I have a clear road. Anyone else experienced this or have any advice.

Re: GT JTD engine noise

I'm no mechanical expert but could it be your power steering pump?

Sometimes when I have the steering at full lock and the car is moving really slowly I get a loud whirring noise which lasts for maybe 10-20 seconds. It always stops when the steering is straightened and I pick up speed.
