You seem to have several dash lights on. Was the car running or just the ignition on?

If you suspect its a power steering pump issue check for leaks. The pumps rarely fail unless they have no fluid in them. The power steering hoses are the weak link as they commonly leak. Replacing the hoses and reservoir when a leak is noticed is the best option. A power steering pump is around $350, the hoses and reservoir are a lot cheaper

So if there leaking check and see from where. And check to see how much fluid is curt fly in the reservoir. If low, top it up right away. Then check to see if The sound remains.

You could try adding a screw-clamp (Jubilee) to the crimped connectors to help reseal the pipes ! I would personally have them replaced...

Its kinda hard to make out the, bit when you revved it i could almost hear what sounde like a bad pulluey,but it could have just been the recording grad a long screwdriver,and check the pulleys of hearing for noise ,be careful noise telescopes so put as close to pulley or component you want to hear apart from this hard to diag without being there.

i started there on the puIIies but the noise was hearabIe today it sound Iike a pretty good air Ieak but from where it appears to have a Iittie oiI n the front side of the engine I fIushed the ps fiuid which is red but this is brown coIored if im Iosing oiI the dip stick isnt reaiiy showing it i dont have the super charger but the noise is in the marked area. and if its the cvv can i get away with just buying the unit by itseIf and not the hoses

2000 BMW 528i Squeiling Noise at start

I have a problem but slightly different. I have a 2000 BMW 528i and have been experiencing a squeiling noise at idle speeds after cold start. Any ideas what could be causing this?

If you could post a video that would help a whole lot these bimmers make a lot of similiar noises when parts are going bad and its very difficult to diagnois. Post a video and more of the experienced guys on here could help you out better but the noise could be a pulley going bad but I tell you if you havent replaced then replace them they really dont last long
