Low Growl/Whine from Engine

Recommended Posts

2016 Journey 3.6 R/T. After engine start and while running there is a low growling or whining sound. From past experience I would say it was the power steering pump, because the sound gets lower when the wheel is center position. The odd thing is with the hood up, engine running I hear nothing. I know the Caravan has had similar issues due to a filter in the power steering reservoir which gets clogged (great design or job preservation)? The steering appears to work fine, at this point but it is still aggregating none the less.

Did this just start or always done it? The 3.6 is known for being noisy on startups. Do you have warranty left?
