Whenever i turn my steering wheel as far left or right as possible it makes a sweaky noise. I just filled the power steering last week with ATF fluid. My dad said the sweaky noise means the power steering is gona die. What you guys think?

Keep your eye at the fluid level. Check it every couple of days; when the level drops you have a serious leak. Good luck!
