    squeeling!!

    k ..... steering squeezes (belt squeal/scream) and the power steering locks when the car is cold....normal? Belts were changed ummm 6 months back..never had a problem until now. Flushed out steering fluid...it helped for 2 days...now its back...its not a huge problem, since i let me car warm up and its fine...but its just kinda annoying when the car is cold. Iam thinken maybey tightenen the belt?

    What do you mean the power steering "locks" when it's cold? Any kind of noise like that isn't normal. The fact that changing the fluid helped but then it came back indicates there's a problem somewhere. Your pump may be going, or there could be a leak in the system. How many miles on the car? Any signs of drips/leaks?
