Granted my car is an '88 735i, but when very cold the power steering will whine for a couple minutes. I know of several others that do this as well in Michigan. I have gone the route of replacing the power steering filter in the fluid canister but this didn't resolve the issue. Just a thought. My whine is will change when the steering wheel is changed
When engine/transmission is cold I can hear whining noise, after about 3 miles drive noise gone. I am thinking about changing transmission oil and filter. If you had same problem and got fixed, let me know how you did it.
94' 740i, 110K mile.
