1. The screeching/grinding noise in the wheels has been going on for about 4 weeks, sounds like worn brakes, but the noise occurs any time the car is moving, unless I turn the steering wheel left.
2. On the drive to work this morning, the power steering failed and at the same time, the A/C stopped blowing cold. Could they be related?
This car is otherwise in great shape, it's paid off, low miles and great fuel econ. Please let me know what you think is wrong. Want to have some ideas before seeing the mechanic.
