Screech from engine.

I am getting a very quite screech from the engine at idle. I Believe this is the power steering pump as the pitch changes as I turn the wheel.

Is this a common problem? is it anything to worry about?. My fluid is fine and i am not loosing any. But the pump makes a loud "chuff" when i hit full lock.

I am probably the only one that follows the rule of "don't hold on full lock for more than 30 seconds"

Re: Screech from engine.

I would say it is the pump, Oh well, aslong as there is nothing to worry about then, Cheers.

Got to fix the Idle properly now, it is almost right but still not good.
