Odd Noise When On Hills - Involves Clutch

This happens when I'm at a dead stop on top of a sharp incline (light at the top of a hill for example). As I depress the gas and release the clutch, (if done too quickly I will peel out and done too slowly I'm riding the clutch) sometimes I hear this noise that can best be described as a "winding up" or almost like the sound you hear in the street racing movies where NOS is being injected into the engine. It's hard to describe it. But when it does happen, I noticed that the sound will continue further down the road, almost as if it needs to wind back down. If I turn the wheel back and forth quickly (on the following straight-away or as I turn into the convenience store 1/4 mile from the hill) the noise will still be there as I turn the wheel. When I start the car back up or continue driving down the following hill, it's gone. I have no idea why it is doing this. But it has been doing this since my last clutch went out. It has been doing this ever since I got the clutch replaced back in February/March. Again, sometimes it does this, sometimes it does not. It is all in a certain way that I engage/disengage the clutch apparently.

Any help in figuring this out is greatly appreciated.

My car (automatic) was kinda making the same noise yours was, yet it isn't. My power steering fluid was probably an inch or 2 below that low line. Filled it up to almost max and the noises seemed to have disappeared.

Quick Update: Filled the reservoir up to the max level last night. Drive into work today and no noise! Now, it was the first time and it could change. But I'm crossing my fingers that it was the fix to my ignorance.

Thanks guys!!!!

Awesome to hear it worked!
