squeal on start

Car as a squeal when I start it and it goes away after a short time; I think it's the power steering, but the fluid is full anyone know how to make it stop, or what it is?

Mine was doing that and it was the power steering belt! Good Luck

An old trick is to hold a bar of soap on both sides of your belt while it's moving.  It will usually help with the noise.  It shouldn't be used as a substitute for a new belt however.   ;)
