    This only happens about 40% of the times im driving but when moving the steering wheel its making a squeeking/squeeling noise. It sounds like its coming from underneath where the pedals are. It also sounds more like a pump going bad than a bearing or something that needs lubrication. I couldnt pinpoint it so im looking to you folks. help me out please

    Well, at least it is not your clutch...........:D

    Check the steering wheel shaft. There should be a bearing on it, but not sure if it can be lubed?????:confused:

    check the bearing on the steering shaft, lube it if you have access to it. also check the boot where the shaft exits the cab. a can of white grease works wonders
