    It is hard to give an opinion on a noise without hearing it first hand. Check the level of your power steering fluid. My second thought is this sound may be normal, it may be your antilock brake pump building up pressure. If you could duplicate the noise stop by your local garage or perhaps leave your car at the shop over night and start the car with them first thing in the morning.

    I have a 2004 TL and the steering wheel was making noises... I took it into the dealer and apparently there is a recall with the hose.

    Not fire. The leaking P/S fluid lands on the exhaust causing smoke.
