XC90 whooshing noise under acceleration

Post by kris8 » Sat Mar 17, 2018 9:21 pm

After replacing power steering rack i noticed a whooshing or new sound coming from the the drivers side vent when accelerating. does not do it when in neutral revving in up. I took it in to local volvo mechanic and had it smoke tested and the turbo checked. All good. They said it could be PCV system. I just redid all of the pcv system with no change in the sound although that needed to be done. Any help on this.

Before the repair, was the rack noisy and possibly masking the "new" noise?

-edit, did the shop performing the repair leave a boot loose at the base of the column?
Current Volvos:
1998 V70 T5, 112k sat 5 years, still in mechanical coma (finally at the top of the pile )
2004 XC90 T6 AWD: 186k, 60 on transaxle ( traded in )
1998 POS70 N/A: DD/training aid, 236k but really about 240k, I think...ABS module( passed on to son who sold it)

Rack was only noisy when turning slow so it did not mask the sound. Also check steering column and it was good.
