Hi. Have you had anything checked out yet for this screeching sound?

screeching occurs only when engaging steering wheel
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 8 months ago.

When you turn the steering does it screech all the time?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
No
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 8 months ago.

The screeching can be from low power steering fluid, or a worn out drive belt and tensioner. I would recommend checking those things first.
