Re: 147 selespeed engine noise

it is possible that it is the power steering pump. these have a reputation of whining as you describe. it is a sign of them beginning to wear.

not a cause for concern tho, mine has been whining daily for the last 2 years! i quite like the added whistle it gives to the already very musical engine!

ps, welcome to the site!

Re: 147 selespeed engine noise

hahaok that reassuring but it makes this noise while moving in a straight line however the powersteering does feel very stiff when stationary any suggestions.
