I have a 1991 Toyota Camry.
The Power steering is noisy and hard to turn steering wheel UNTIL engine warms up. Then it is fine. What's happening? I have sucked old old fluid and put in new (Dextron II ATF per manufacturers specs) but wife says it still doing the above but not as bad. Once engine warms up, steers like it came out of showroom.
The sound is the same noise anyone would hear when turning the steering wheel all the way to the stop. A chirping noise. Why would it be hard to turn the wheel and chirp with any movement of the wheel but then be perfectly fine after the engine gets to normal operating temp?
