Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question

Do you have a service engine soon light on when the engine is running?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No lights are on. I already paid $20 on my PayPal account.

Did you happen to replace the Idle air control valve on your car, some what recently?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, but does that have anything to do with the power steering? The drum & belt next to the engine on the passenger side is making noise that correlates with the steering problem.
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

How is the power steering fluid level? What is the power steering doing? making noise? Hard to turn?

Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

What kind of noise is it making? Screeching sound? Humming? Roaring?
