Fan belt squeaks or a bearing squeaks especially when steering wheel is turned right
My car has 95000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Squealing when turning the wheel can be caused by a few things. A worn belt can be the source, as can a failed belt tensioner not keeping the belt tight enough. Also, a failing water pump, alternator, or power steering pump bearing may be failing. The added load of turning the wheel can add load to a bearing and cause noise. The power steering pump itself may be the cause as well.
Have a certified technician look into the squealing when turning to isolate the exact cause.
