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.

Where does the energy in sound come from and where does it go?

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.

If the noise on occurs after the vehicle has sat for a while, it could be a hydralic valve lifter bleeding off. They tend to click for a while until the oil pushes all of tha air out. Maybe go to a lighter weight of oil. BG makes a product called MOA that has helped ease the clicking noise in vehicles I have worked on in the past. Take it easy until it warms up and even clicking it should last for a whole lot more miles!

What if the car makes a squealing sound from a cold start?

That is very likely a slightly loose serpentine or other drive belt. In colder weather belts get stiffer and slicker, fluid (as in the steering pump) gets thicker and harder to turn . If it diminishes when your car warms up, that is almost certainly the cause. - Let a mechanic hear it and diagnose it. There is also the possibility it could be a bearing worn in alternator or any other belt driven part.
