I had this same problem. And if I am thinking of the same straining noise your talking about. Mine sounded like a noise like wet rubber was rubbing hard together? is that the same sound? if it is the same sound, I had to put new front struts in my 1999 Dodge Avenger and it didnt make the sound anymore.

TORQUE CONVERTER IS A LIKELY CAUSE

Could be the alternator has failed.
The most likely cause is an inoperative radiator fan.

It is usually caused by either a bad tire, or loose steering components.
Most likely cause is that the intermediate steering shaft has a bad Joint(s). Replace the steering shaft and you'll be good to go. This shaft is connected to the steering gear box on one end and the steering colum at the other.
A worn or damaged component. Suggest to have someone wiggle the steering back and forth while you inspect for excessive play.
