    89 Civic automatic with 220,000 miles on it. I usually drive this
    car before the
    warmed engine. I don't like to sit there and wait for the engine to get
    I don't mean I don't idle at all. I do idle about 3 or 4 mins.
    I have some noises issue under driving with not-warmed engine such
    squeak when I hit the break and some kind of whistling or whirring
    sound I don't know exactly where
    it comes from, but once the car reaches normal temp, these noises
    Also the car seems to run a bit of overloaded on driving with
    not-warmed engine . Once the engines gets norm temp, the overloaded
    feel gets disapper.

    My guess on these noises.
    Squeaking break = Master Cylinder is not fully operated under
    not-warmed engine
    Whistle or Whirring = I don't no idea.

    WAY too long. 30 seconds at most.

    **BRAKE** squeak and other noises can be rust, dust, aftermarket pads, or
    poor istallation.

    Your car is OLD. Old cars develop lots of noises from pure age. All the
    sound-deadening the factory installed is old and dried out, if it hasn't
    fallen off entirely. Parts work loose, buzz, rattle, hum and squeak. Seats
    come loose, gaskets loosen and harden.

    Noise in a 17 year-old car is usually NORMAL. Exceptions are noises that
    indicate mechanical problems, and those are best diagnosed by a competent

    You mean it appears to have no power? Go easy on it until the temperature
    gauge reaches full-hot: Accelerate gently, and keep the revs below 3,000.

    You may just need a tune-up. At this age, neglect can cause all kinds of

    Too much idling is wasting gas, right.
    I think it's rust and dust. So much dirt and grease around the left
    Break where
    the squeak is coming from...

    How about 5 seconds of big noise as soon as I start drive in the
    The noise is definitely has to do with Power Steering only during
    turning wheel.
    There is no noise if not turn the wheel. I think the power steering
    is not energized
    fully under cold engine temp.

    No not about power. Yes that's what I thought. I don't go higher
    more than 2,500 when
    the temp is not reach normal.

    Loads the oil with fuel, too.

    Grease around the BRAKE? (It's not spelt "break") Are you sure the CV joint
    boot isn't split?

    Power steering pumps get noisy with age. This may be normal too. So long as
    it doesn't leak or squeal constantly, and the belt is properly tensioned,
    forget about it.
