If it's a whining noise it's the power steering and every ford that i have seen does it.

By the way, just a little info on this, but when you turn the wheel side to side, you are actually bleeding the system of any air; so, what I would do when you turn the wheel side to side is to open the hood and check your fluid. If it looks bubbly, you probably had air in the lines. And, if that is the case, just top it off, and you should be fine.
