    So I just got my 02 Wrx over a month ago and when I turn her on she squeals. I more than think its the power steering because when it also happens when i do tight turns but im not sure what it is. I don't think it has anything too do with the clutch either because when i let off it still squeals.

    Does anyone have any ideas???

    Simplest answer is the belts. If they're old, change them with authentic Subaru parts. That should fix the squeal. If not, then look deeper, but you'd have needed the belts anyway so you've not lost much.
