2.5L Engine dilemma

Everytime I turn the steering wheel, the engine squels as if complaining that something is wrong. I thought it could be the alternator or possibly the bearings but i cant say sor sure. It's making a screeching noise that seems to originate from inside the engine almost when the wheels turn. Any help would be very much obliged.

Have you checked the power steering pump or belt?

How or where can i check that? My knowledge if pretty limited on most mechanical components Still learning since i only got this jeep a few months back, but what could it possibly be? I mean, i guess it could make sense that it's the belt, b/c the engine is affected by turning the wheel and she sounds different.

If the PS fluid is good, then chances are the belts loose, when you turn the wheel it causses the pump to load, and the pulley is slipping. You need to either tighten or replace the belt. If you don't know how to do it, then go buy a Chilton manual. It will give you step by step instructions.
