Brera 2.4 jtdm whining noise
I still have this noise,I was told it was the power steering pump,first I had the fluid changed from red to G.I.R.green no change,apparently on the 2.4 jtdm there are no problems with the reservoir,on viewing the fluid with the top of there are no bubbles no evidence of metal from worn bearings or movement in the fluid,I have drawn fluid out to expose the filter which is still in position,I have just had a known good second hand power steering pump fitted but still have the same noise.
The noise isn't there when starting from cold but after travelling for about a quarter of a mile it starts whining at about 2,000 rpm and increases with revs,there is a thread on here with a link to u tube and it sounds exactly the same that guy says he had a new power steering pump fitted and the whining noise was still there!he had a new auxillary idler pulley fitted and it cured it,has anyone else had this problem and was it the same cure?along with the whining there is sometimes a grating sort of noise but only when the engine is under load accelerating,thanks in advance for your help and advice.
