Squeaky Steering

Ive been having a problem with my '97 where the steering wheel likes to squeak a lot while turning. Was wondering if anyone else has had this problem and wether or not I should just hit it with WD 40 or any other kind of oil...thanks

Might be an issue with something called the clock spring, I don't know enough to tell ya why it does or what the part looks like, just that I have heard it be the reason sometimes.

Could be anything causing it. Power steering pump, belt, all kinds of fron t end parts, etc. Do you know where it it coming from?

Look under your dash. There is a rubber grommet in the firewall where the steering shaft makes its way under the hood. Put some lube on the rubber grommet and be squeeky free.

X3! Mine sounded like angry ferrets when cold. Lube the rubber gasket with white lithium and you're good to go.
