    today it is very cold....I started my car and turned the steering left n right and i heard a cracking/squeeky noise coming from the steering wheel????? What could be causing this. Also the steering is very hard to steer when its cold????

    things change already:
    ball joint,upper control arm,tie rod, rack(maybe it was a bad one?),new pump,and fluid.....


    thanx for all the help in advance

    i had that same problem when i lived back east. i think its just the fact that everything shrinks when its cold (no joke intended lol). this usually happened when its real cold like below 30 degrees.

    there is no fluid leaks/and the level is correct...Does this sound like a bad rack or something that keeps the fluid in the rack moving/warm?????

    any help would be nice.....I cant steer the car that well......please help

    No PS owns j00! Power steering is gay. Go get a non-power rack and have fun with it.
