I have a 2002 olds Intrigue that squeaks in cold weather. There isn't any sqeak when the temperature in about 40 deg or higher. The noise comes from the front end & only when I make a turn. My mechanic put in new struts & said there is no other problems. Still have the sqeak. Power steering fluid is O.K. Sounds life a creeking door.

It all depends on the outside (ambient) air temperature. Your A/C low pressure switch is designed to turn the compressor off at 24 Psi. and turn it back on at 45 Psi. Most systems will normally run at between 25 and 40 Psi when the system is running on HIGH blower and "MAX" or "RECIRCULATE". A system that is fully charged may run at 25 Psi when the ambient temperature is 75 Deg. (F) and may run at 40 Psi when the ambient temperature is at 90 Deg. (F). (it can be even higher if ambient temperatures are higher than 90 Degrees.)
To properly diagnose a malfunctioning A/C system, the HIGH side pressure must also be checked. Restrictions in the system can make the low side pressure look normal while the high side pressure is high enough to blow hoses apart. (400+ Psi.)
Engine oil specifications for Peugeot 306 1.6 petrol engine:
1. SAE 5W-40, API SH or SG, for temperatures between -30 Celsius deg. and +40 Celsius deg. 2. SAE 10W-40, API SH or SG, for temperatures between -15 Celsius deg. and +40 Celsius deg. 3. SAE 15W-40, API SH or SG, for temperatures between -10 Celsius deg. and +40 Celsius deg. 4. SAE 15W-50, API SH or SG, for temperatures between -10 Celsius deg. and +50 Celsius deg. 5. SAE 20W-50, API SH or SG, for temperatures between -5 Celsius deg. and +50 Celsius deg.
If the "sqeak" is more pronoused while going over bumps, then it is most likely a bushing in the front end. Check your fuel tank straps also, they may be loose. Sounds like this are always a pain to locate. Make sure nothing is in the back cargo area. You can also take your foot and shake the exhaust, WHILE THE CAR IS COOLED OFF OF COURSE.
You can also push down on each corner of the vehicle in the front and stand on the rear bumper to try to simulate or isolate the noise. That's all I have for ya. Good luck.
lol, well...you can either go the route of the previous persons solution or you can- if you are positive the sqeak is coming from the ball joints-spray some WD-40 on it. I wouldnt suggest replacing it again, since you just did it and chances are there is nothing wrong with the integrity of the part, your just getting an annoying byproduct lol. Like when belts sqeak(which p's me off but i just turn my radio up lol).
Even if the joints appear to be OK, often they run dry and are rusted inside. Unfortunately you cannot see that unless you remove the axle and visually check them out. You have universal joints in there? I thought they began using c/v joints right around 2000. Check that the brake pad sensors are not hitting the rotors as well that can make a squeaking noise.Before taking anything apart, try to determine which side the noise is on.
5W- 30 is the lowest you can go in winter time. I would use a high mileage formula since we're talking about a 1990 honda. It will help condition the seals in the motor from making any oil leaks worse.
the grease on the moving parts tend to congeal and harden up when it gets cold. Spray the moving parts with carb cleaner being careful not to spray any electrical switches of open wiring. Mechanical parts only. Hope this helps...leave feedback for others to see if this helps...thanks
