2008 Sport Liberty squeling when turning

I have a 08 Liberty Sport that is squealing when turning out of driveway and parking spots. Any tips or hints on what to check. Just started this since the temps got cooler. I will inspect the belts and power steering pump/pulley/tensioner this afternoon. Just wanted to find out if there is something else to check while Im in there. Thanks.

Sounds like a loose belt

These use a serpentine belt with a tensioner, correct?

Yes, the KK uses a tensioner, and unless you have a lot of miles on your KK, the tensioner probably isn't bad. Have you checked the level of the fluid yet? Also, be sure to use only ATF+4 if you need to top it off.......

It is right at 20K right now. Its my wife's Jeep and she said it was squealing. I change the oil and other maintenance stuff. I usually look around under the hood when I am doing that but didn't see anything out of the ordinary two weeks ago.
The fluid level is first on my list, then checking the tensioner. Thanks for the info.

Checked it out over the weekend, I could not get the belt to squeal. Fluid level looked fine, tensioner appears okay, belt tight.
I told my wife, "NO more water crossings!"
