I wonder if there is something wrong with my power steering. Whenever the engine is cold and i try to steer it like pulling out of a parking lot it's pretty hard and it squeels pretty bad. But whenever the engine has been ran and if i pull out of the smae spot it don't do anything. Any suggestions

Hum. You could have bubbles in your power steering line. I don't really know anything about this, but it seems to me the oil and air both expand when they get hot right? Therefore if it was cold, there would be a lack of pressure when you turned the wheel, but when it was warm there would be more pressure within the hose and you might not feel the air as much. However, as I said before, I am only guessing and I know nothing about power steering. I know that power brakes sometimes need to be bled to get the air out of them; could power steering be the same way? Either that, or you might need a new belt, that's the squealing noise, I suspect, that's what it was on my dad's geo. But again, I don't know anything about this... Who knows. Maybe your power steering is actually a squirrel who doesn't work very hard unless the engine is hot to 'encourage' him and when you turn the wheel he is grumpy and squeaks at you in anger. Who knows. ;)

You know....i never thought about it being the belt. That might be what it is. Sometimes when i get on the engine real hard it will sqeak for a couple of seconds. There is no way i'm gonna change that belt myself. I think i'll let the professionals handle this one. I think auffenburg would rape me though so i'm not gonna go there. Hopefully i can find a place localy.

I found an acorn in my silencer jug when I took it off. I was kind of wondering how it got in there. Maybe escorts are animal powered or something. The engine is probably just a coverup, and there's like a racoon on crack cocaine in there.

Ha ha ha..........i think you might be on to something. Maybe they are living of the rice that my mazda engine makes. I should try to take it apart just to see. There might even be some little japanesee guy in there peddling away.......
