I would think that might be a restricted or not fully seated PCV.

I had my water pump replaced a while back thinking that was the whine.NOT IT.The dealership was telling me it'* the air conditioner pump.He said if it was him he would let it whine.That it was like a $1000 dollar fix and that it was a commen problem.He also said he had seen them go for years whinning like that.You can either fix it or learn to live with it .I'm living with mine but I dont like that sound unless it'* actually comming from a supercharger thats supost to have a little whine .I like that kind. Later SOCLEANONE.

Power steering does whine, my sister in law had a 93 SE with the swoopie wheels (well sorta) and her power steering whined.

Whiney power steering is definitely indicative of a problem. It'* gonna complain some when you hit the boundries, but any other time and you should get it looked at.

so does mine like if i am really getting on it

i think it is cause of the type of trans

i know that it isnt the power steering pump

and it also whines when i just barely put pressure on the throttle

i know that it doesnt do it constantly

Psst...PCV not fully seated.

Take it from someone that fixed the problem. High rpm only..check pcv. All other stuff...and power steering..worry, cause something'* gonna break.
