Question about 2001 Ford Escape
Heavy squeak (like turning a heavy rubber belt) when turning 2001 Mazda Tribute Seems worse at start up or when wet.
Your fan belt is slipping. As you turn the wheel you make a power demand on the power steering compressor. This compressor takes its power from the fan belt so as you steer the compressor shaft is harder to rotate and the belt slips as a result. The fan belt should be adjustable by loosening the alternator bolts and moving the alternator away form the engine and than re-tightening the bolts. Check that the fan belt is not worn, if there are obvious signs of wear or cracking then renewal would be the best step. Always make a sketch of the path of the belt around the respective engine pulleys before removing it.
