When I start the truck it doesn't make a noise only when I try to turn it makes a whining noise and it's hard to park parallel or park in a tight spot.
Do you

Hello,

The whining noise could happen due to low power steering fluid or the pump is going bad.
So first make sure the fluid is at the correct level and in good condition, as contaminated fluid can create friction and noise.

Here is a helpful guide:

I have attached the pump replacement procedure for your reference.

Let me know of any questions.
Thank you.
