  • The squeeking noise makes me think it's the power steering pump. I'm not sure if that would cause your other symptom though.
  • Check power steering fluid level first, it could be low or the pump might need replaced. Squeak. The bump under acceleration could be a number of things that do not relate to the power steering.

      Check the fluid when the car is cold. If it's low, refill it, then turn the wheel back and forth a few times to put pressure on the lines. Afterwards, look around and underneath for any drips from a damaged hose.
  • its the brakes, i just had this problem, you need new brake pads possible new rotors

      Brake pads wouldn't be a cause of a squeal when the car is stationary.
