Question Whining Noise When Accelerating

after a quick two laps it started making this really loud whining noise from the engine bay

not sure what it is, maybe a pulley. anyone experience this same issue?

reading through this article to get a better sense of what it could be.

i'm not a mechanic. i don't have enough time in my busy day to keep going back to the dealer for all these mechanical problems..

I get some kind of whining too after every time I get my car sideways.. So it makes me think (in my case) could be my power steering pump or pulley. It whines after drifting or doing figure eight while drifting. Goes away after some calm driving...

I have a whine, i hear it after hard driving, but nothing bad enough to bring to dealer...

LMK what you find.

exactly! sounds like the car is coming to an end.
i thought it was the power steering but it becomes louder as i roll on the throttle.
when i turn the wheel right to left or left to right the volume of the noise doesn't change

I noticed after a day of tracking my power steering reservoir had splashed out power steering fluid all over the engine bay even though the cap was tight. Have you checked the level of the PS?
