Why would there be a squealing sound when turning until your car warms up?

AnswerYour belt is probably loose. Your steering pump labors and stresses the belt and squeals when the belt is loose. You should have less than 3/4 inch play up and down on your belt when properly tightened.

answer sounds to me like your power steering fluid is old and dirty or wrong viscosity oil thins out when hot hence the noise going away

I would also say it is the belt. to get more wear out of it and to stop the noise, rub the inside of the belt with a bar of soap.

It usually arises from the kinetic energy of something moving, which creates pressure waves, that travel and disperse slowly. Sound loses energy until it is all dissapated. That energy is lost to heat. Sound warms things up, a tiny bit.
