    Default Power Steering. . .Maybe. . . Dun'o

    hi guys n gals. . . im just posting to see if anyone has any idea what the problem is with my vectra. . . .when the cars running there is a whirring/whinning noise coming from the engine i took it to a local garage who thinks its a noisey power steering motor and im thinking hes right but not definate cos when you turn the wheel it goes off sometimes and goes off when you put a full lock on. . . there is no warning lights or anything on the dash but im going to get him to hook it up to the computer when i take it in for its m.o.t to see for definate what it is. . . but basiclly if there's someone out there who has experienced this how much does a new P/S motor cost and fit???
    any help to help me brace my self would be great . . . especially after just spending 400 on a service then a few month before that 170 on a new wiper motor and 170'ish on the EGR valve a couple of month before that. . . this motor is costing me a bomb lol
    thanks in advance guys

    the power steering pump on my '52 plate Astra, and my Current '06 Vectra whine this is a common thing with the pumps and as its electro-hydraulic it also saps a lot of power out of the electrical system causing the lights to dim slightly when in use

    I would ensure that the Power stering fluid is topped up, and if it is and there are no other issues with the power steering then there would be nothing to worry about.

    Me an my dad both got the 150 (FAIL, should of gone on here before buying lol). He's had the alternator fault couple of months ago, new one. Both do make alternator noise but his is making more than normal now and steering goes stiffer sometimes but does come back. Gotta check the connections and the fluid level. Been reading and could be pump, steering rack or ecu prob's. Prob not steering rack because its intermittent, just wondering if anyone else got any other ideas or the probable cause? cheers for the help...
