My car squealing while driving

Hi. Can you explain the squealing more? Does it happen when the car is just running and not moving? Or do you have to be driving? Do you hear the squealing when turning the steering wheel?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
While driving, while turning, and while at rest when I start the car

Also it's difficult turning steering wheel like its jammed
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

You may want to check and tighten the power steering pump belt. If there is any slippage the steering will turn hard and the belt will squeal.

Is that the only thing it could be?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I checked the power steering fluid and filled it up
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

It could be one of the other belts. But it makes sense to check the power steering belt from the symptoms you describe
