Load squealing on startup when very cold out

Any ideas what that could be?

Hemi, auto, 2005 GGC Limited.

It is loud for maybe 5 seconds at the most.

Thanks for any assistance!

Re: Load squealing on startup when very cold out

It is likely the power steering pump. When very cold, the fluid isn't as viscous, and the pump struggles to get things circulated.

There was a re-design of the power sterring fluid resevoir to try and alleviate this concern, but I honestly haven't noticed much of a difference between the old and new - mine'll still complain first start on a cold day.

I would say if it only lasts a few seconds, and only happens when really cold, it is "normal"
