94 with a 2.5. When I make a hard right turn, I hear a very loud squeal. And it's not every time that it does it, I have to slow down and make a ninety degree turn or more. I'm not too mechanically inclined, especially when it comes to diagnosing a problem, so any help would be appreciated.

First thing you want to do is make sure your fluid level is full, located driver side next to radiator. Though, sounds like your belt maybe slipping, may need a simple adjustment or could be time to replace. Just so happens belt tensioner is located on the steering pump bracket.

Sounds like it needs a new belt or the tensioner needs to be tightened a bit

Thanks guys. I just got the jeep a couple of months ago, and judging by everything else on the jeep, it probably needs a new belt. If that doesn't fix the noise I'll see about the tensioner. Once again, thanks fellers.
