Q: How to fix squealing power steering

asked by on

I have the squealing noise when I first turn my car own from the steering wheel. I replaced the power steering pump and also the high pressure hose. What else could it be?

My car has 124000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello....This could be a dry or worn out ball bearing assembly of which there are quite a few (alternator, A/C, idler pulleys, etc) or it could be a belt alignment, belt age, or belt tension issue. YourMechanic can isolate these components and determine which one(s) are at fault.
