I've recently noticed that there's a slight lag from when I depress the gas pedal to feeling the car accelerate.

What could be the cause?

I the mornings when I start the car I hear a "shhhheeshhhhee" sound, especially when I turn the steering wheel to do a K-turn to get out of the driveway/garage area.

Are the two things related?
