We just had a new engine with 75,000 miles put in and now it is making "squealing noises" not just when turning the steering wheel but even when just idleing - guessing it is the power steering belt or power steering pump - all new belts were put on. Any ideas where to start - car runs great with new engine but never had this noise before.

Checkto seeif tensioner is any good as they should be replaced when belts are. A good test is to spray water on belts if noise goes away replace the tensioners or adjust if no tensioner.
