Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site. .The power steering system, or fluid won't cause it to overheat. It may just need to be flushed. Does the power steering work normally?

The car makes a noise when I turn
Expert:  Jerry replied 7 months ago.
I see, thanks. That could be the power steering pump but it may help to flush it first to see if the noise goes away. It could just be the fluid is contaminated..Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating..Does the engine overheat though? You may want to check that first..
