Chirp during cold and/or first start of the day. Improves with acceleration. No relation to steering. Resolves after 10 minutes of driving.

constant-squeal/squeak--when engine cold. dissipates immensely when engine warms// i replaced o ring ($2.55)//part on one of the power steering hoses// noise basically quit! but now iam concerned about this idler issue?

Idler Pulley makes a vibration noise when you step on the gas. Wonder how much it costs to fix it??
