Question condensor fan/check gauge light?

My a/c started blowing hot air on start-up, then would get colder. Found it was the condensor fan bracket. Coolant levels were fine, fan wouldn't spin unless I tapped on it. Getting the fan replaced tonight! .....

Yesterday I hear an awful squealing under the hood. Thinking it was the fan, I popped the hood. The noise wasn't anywhere near the fan, moreso in the engine. This morning, my check gauge light came on, then when I tried to make a right turn, the wheel locked up. Then the noise stopped momentarliy, left turn then right turn was fine. Then to noise somewhat started again....

*whew*........ HELP????????

Power steering pump? Belt? Tensioners? You can use a stethoscope to narrow it down. I'm kinda leaning toward PS pump since your steering was affected. BTW- welcome to the forum. I'm in St Pete.
