    that could be it, i did take off the p s belt and then put a new one back on so it could posible be that since i haven't used it in a while that the fluid level lowered after putting the new belt back on.

    thanks!!!

    When I start my car on cold days, it makes a funny whinning/whirring noise. I think it might be PS. It's not broke yet and it only does it when it's cold out. I've had my car for 2 years. The noise is still there.
    Fuck it. Just ignore it. If something breaks, then you have a problem.

    could be suspension, bushing, ball joint, just about anything. Make sure it's all tight with the wheel off the ground. Have the front end lifted and turn the wheels lock to lock, and listen.

    On another note, I don't trust my local Les Schwab. My buddies tires were worn a little on the inside, and they wanted to replace the powersteering rack, over $850 for the whole swap, when he didn't even need a tie rod. Buyer beware. I make them show ME why stuff is bad.
