Steering Whisper

When going 25 mph + and I turn the steering wheel there is a whispering noise coming from the engine compartment. This noise is not there when I turn the wheel when the car is stationary or moving fairly slowly. I particularly notice it on windy roads going 50 to 60 mph The power steering fluid level has not fallen and is correct. I have owned the vehicle for 3 years and had no steering issue before and not even topped up the steering fluid. The noise comes when the steering is turned just a little bit. There is no play in the steering and the car handles wonderfully. Any ideas what it is? What steps can I take to diagnose it?

try changing the power steering filter

normally there are noises when there isn't enough fluid. sounds like you have enough fluid, but you need more RPM to push it through your filter.

get a turkey baster and suck the reservoir on the pump dry and the filter is at the bottom.
