Seems like the first "cold" day of the year, my power steering starts whining. And I top it off w/ fluid and everything is fine.
Last night temps got to ~50 around here and this morning, what do you know... time for some more fluid. I realize there is probably a slow leak somewhere (plan on fixing with the Lucas Stop leak on a warmer day). But usually topping off the reservoir fixes the whining.
This time I still get really faint whining at low speeds only while turning tight (granted I only drove for about 5 minutes today), looked in the reservoir and noticed a bunch of tiny little bubbles?
My question is the faint noise/bubbles due to the fluid still being cold (will it go away after driving for >20 min)? Or do I need to flush the lines and put new fluid in?
Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions
