SOURCE: power steering noise
Sounds to me that the power steering belt is loose. If it is a 2.4 litre engine it has two serpentine belts. You should replace the belts especially if it was smoking.

check the motor motor mounts for movement,
watch how far engine rocks forward or back with it running and foot on brake

Could be bad bearings in the belt tensioner pulley, bad bearings in the water pump, bad bearings in the alternator (though that would tend to squeal unless they're really trashed) or bad bearings in the power steering pump. Get a wrench on each one and see which one won't turn.

Need to determine if the compressor is good by turning the center of the pulley assembly.if that turns then remove the serpintene belt and check the pulley for free operation. It should spin with no restrictions. If the compressor is good ,remove the electric plug for a/c clutch and remove center shaft bolt.taping on the side of the compressor clutch shoe , The shoe should come off. May require a screwdriver to carefully pry off. Once the shoe is removed there is a large snap ring inside the pulley bearing that needs to be removed. After that is done ,the clutch magnet should also come off ,and that will be the a/c compressor that is left. The a/c clutch , clutch shoe ,and pulley/ bearing are sold seprate. Let me know if that helps
