Power steering question?? squealing
So a question I already know the reason for, but don't know the underlying problem.
When my 2004 6 Wagon MTX starts cold(Here in SD it gets pretty cold) it is squealing. Now I know that it is getting air into the system somehow but I don't know if anyone else has had this problem.
On first starting it will squeal. If I slowly turn the wheel right away, it more or less stops the squeal. Then within 10 seconds the sound is gone whether or not I am turning the wheel. Also, after it has sat overnight, there is a very small puddle under the front drivers side engine. I've looked on here and also under my car and see the metal hose where most fog lights would be and see that it is a bit wet there. I cannot tell where it is coming from and assume it must be from the connections to the rubber hose but cannot see it.
My question is, has anyone ever had this? Has anyone had an extremely small crack in the metal hose? Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you ahead of time.
