slug is matter which can no-longer stay in suspension or by-productions of combustion, oil break down etc... All indicate the engine oil was not doing it's job.

Agree completely

Wow... thanks everyone, very useful information!! I really appreciate all your feedback.

Now if I hear a squeek every now and then when I turn my wheel all the way, what is that noise from?

causing the serpentine belt to slip slightly resulting in a squeaking or squealing noise.

In the perfect world you shouldn't ever turn the steering wheel all the way to the left or right until it locks out- the system binds on hydraulic units, electric units won't bind but it is hard on mechanical linkage.

you shouldn't ever have your foot placed firmly on the brake while you twist the steering wheel through its travel.

Ideally every time you turn the steering wheel you should have some forward or backward travel of the car.

Thanks for your feedback guys... (any maybe gals)... however, sometimes, the squeeking happens when the wheel isn't completely turned, perhaps, if I am making a U-turn, or a sharp turn. It always happens when the car is in motion. Is this noise something that is broken/cracked in my car, or is it something that a little oil can fix?
