Problem with my 2000 pontiac sunfire

I have a 2000 pontiac sunfire and now sometimes when I start the car I hear this ringing noise and even when I accelerate. After a while it goes away, but then it returns. What could possibly be the problem?

My 2000 pontiac sunfire wont start when i turn the key. It just makes a continuous clicking noise for as long as I hold the key trying to start it. The. Starter had problems before but than it

first off does it have a remote starter hooked to it, if so disable it, my daughters car did the same thing till I took the remote out sometime the remote won't let you start manually in it is still engaged. next make sure all your connections are tight (battery ans starter, I bought a starter at a local parts store it was only acouple of months old for her car it started to do the same thing so I took it back and it failed their test ended up getting a new one. also check the rely located on the left fender wall it is marked starter it may be bad.

So my 2000 Pontiac Sunfire has an issue with the power steering. I'm not sure if its a belt, the pullly or barrings in the pully, or if its the actual pump. It has fluid and everything. But you can...

Firs check the belt tension, you should have about 1/4 of an inch free play in the belt, that is up and down movement of the belt, also check the fluid level.
Is there any noises from the powersteering pump, like a bubbling noise or a whirring noise?
