If it squeals when you're holding the wheel at full lock, that's normal for any power steering system. IIRC, something to do with the pump trying to keep up with what's interpreted as an infinite demand. Just don't hold it there.

Any air bubbles in the reservoir or low fluid? You might try to rebuild the pump with new o-rings or buy a new pump all together.

Re: steering squeeks when turning....

ive been looking for an answer to this same question. After doing a timing job on my car it started to make noise at full turn. and it didnt use to make that noise before. i havent been able to find an answer. oh and the power steering pump is new, got it replaced from the dealer when i bought the car 2yr ago.

Sounds like theres an air bubble in your power steering fluid to me.

Re: steering squeeks when turning....

yea thats what i thought too. when i tried to find out how to bleed the system i only found that the air would find its way out. I know that in most cars its done by finding the return line and bleeding it from there.
