I am getting some squealing out of my power steering mid stroke on the steering arc. Fluid is up and everything is adjusted. Any ideas?

As mentioned above, how much play do you have in your belt? I had the same problem recently and found that a bracket behind my pump had broken. Fabbed a new one and no more squeal.

Belt is glazed or undertensioned.

Thanks Alan, it doesn't soiund like a belt squeal though.....more like when you max the power steering out at the end of the stroke.

Well, if the belt is marginal, I believe that when it reaches the end, the resistance ramps up which might cause a marginal belt to slip at that point.

Anyways, it is the easiest fix for openers.

If the system has air in it it may need to be purged. Jack up the front end, start the car, and turn the steering wheel lock to lock a few times to work the air out. I've heard of people driving the car onto 2 pieces of cardboard (to avoid scuffing the tires) and doing the same thing. Not sure if you need the load from being on the ground or not.

Air X3 along with Marks purge procedure. It's a low zero thing to try first by any means.
