Taurus 2000, squeak from steering wheel

I always hear squeaks when I am rotating the steering wheel to turn left. It began six months ago, and the sound is becoming louder. What's the problem with the steering wheel or something else?

Get it. The tie rod joint was not good. I lubricated by using the grease needle injector. Then noise was gone.

Hello and good day to you:

Have you consider the possibility it may be a Power Steering problem?? Or a bad serpentine belt??

Ever check the steering fluid level. It looks good.
