My engine light came on, i pulled over everthing seemed fine (was dark out) The next day I had a look at her under the daylight, I'mthinkin the power steering hose might be loose or leaking. the fluid is full though. When I turn the wheel with the engine on & the hood up I can hear a noise coming from that area.>?
The weather ahs been bone chillin cold the last 3 weeks, was done to -45 Celcus. might be a cause?
Can someone please help, I hate to take it to the mechanic shop down the road, Cause I Tapped his daughter.
Being that cold many strange things happen to cars... Bluedia may be correect it just may be a gas ap that was not tightened to the 3 clicks that GM reccomends.
the Power steering unit will make noise on any car when hood is open and car in park as long as level is full I would look elsewhere unless you have fluid everwhere... The power steering unit is a pressured system like the radiator and cooling system if it is leakign You will know mess everywhere...
Best of Luck and BTW find a new mechanic without daughters lol

Your mechanic needs to figure out where the coolant is going. If it is not showing up under the car or on the floor mats in the car, then the problem may be either a leaking head gasket or in your radiator. If it is the radiator, coolant may be getting into your engine oil and this is very serious.
Hello your daylight running lamps relay is at fault this can be located in your power distribution center under your engine compartment under your hood beside your engine battery.Once you have opened a fine detailed map will show your day light running lamps relay pull it out and replace.
check your ht leads try turning the engine over in the dark looking under the bonnet to see any sparking on ht leads get someone to turn over the engine while you look if you see sparking chang the leads they have cracked
A week ago, on my Lexus ES 300 (2001), "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights came on. This coincided with me filling the gas tank to the brim to round the dollar to be paid. I cleaned the gas tank cap and the tank opening. However, both lights persisted. On the same day, when I turned on the car again, there was a hesitance, a stuttering to come on. Both "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights were still on.
The next day, the car wouldn't come on at all. It sounded as the battery was dead. I couldn't even jump start the car. So, I got a new battery from Costco ($59) and put it in. It took 15-20 seconds of cranking to get the car started. Once it was started, the engine sounded fine and the RPM normal. The "Check Engine" light was off. However, the "Trac Off" was still on. I cleaned the gas tank cap one more time.
The next morning, when I turned the car on, there was no problems. It came on instantly as it used to be, didn't have any warning lights, and drove smoothly.
