car mechanic help

i have a 350z that i keep in the garage all winter. well i started it and when i move the steering wheel back and forth it makes a squeaking noise. it only happens when it's parked. when i'm driving it, it doesn't make any sounds. what do you think is the problem? i checked the steering fluid and it looks fine.

Check the tie rod ends. The car sitting still will make noises too, lmao.

Oh yeah, while you're at it, check the blinker fluid too.

it's not that guys. sound comes from the inside the hood not the tires.

blinker fluid was extra, didn't want to spend that kind of money on that. LOL

maybe your power steering? Or the belt that drives your P/S pump? Check you P/S fluid and check the condition of the drive belt as well then post back up.
