I have a buick century 3.1 just bought a power steering pump and the wheel is still hard to turn when i put the power steering fluid in it gets empty fast but know leaking in the car what can that be

If it won't stay full, then it has to be leaking out somewhere.

check carefully the rack and pinion-where the fluid goes to accommodate power steering-drips or leaks there indicate seals in the rack have gone out. The rack is located underneath, and in back of the engine.

The steering in my 98 Buick Century is hard to turn at low speeds. Is this a steering pump issue or the rack and pinion?

Your PS pump is fine.

This vehicle has:

Variable-assist power steering: A power steering system that uses valves and speed sensors to vary the amount of steering assist according to engine or road speed. At slow speeds more steering assist is delivered and steering the wheels is easier; necessary for parking, etc.. At higher speeds, steering assist is reduced and more steering effort is required to steer the car, giving the driver greater feel of the road. Also known as Speed-sensitive power steering.

Loss of current to the magnetic coils would cause a loss of power assist at low speed. Coil resistance can be checked with an ohmmeter, and should read about two ohms. An infinite (open) reading indicates a bad coil (requires replacing the rack since the coils are not serviceable). Checking for shorts between both sides of the coil assembly and rack housing is also recommended.

Best wishes

Car groans when turning corners

You need to describe the problem better. Does it groan only when moving and turning, or will it make the same noise just sitting there turning the steering wheel. If it only makes noise when moving, that rules out a ps problem, the ps doesnt know if you are moving or not. Does it make different noise if you are going to the right or left, same noise, different? I dont know about the reservoir, some of them have filters, but I dont know if Buick does or not. If it was, it would cause a whine, not a groan.

Buick century - wheels are hard to turn - Hydraulic pump already replaced

you may need a rack and pinion "steering gear". You might try putting some hy-tach oil additive in it first

2002 buick century transmission shifter will not move on the column.

Check the cable that is located above the steering wheel, it affects the shifting mechanism. My Buick was recently having this same problem. Tear open the cover to your steering wheel and locate the black cable that runs over the top and around the back side of the steering wheel. This may be the problem if it isn't sitting properly.

Draining of the rack and power steering

the best way is with a automotive suction gun (about $6), drain the reservoir and then refill until the fluid is clear, but from past years of many such noise concerns coming through the shop u will end up replacing the power steering pump.

Power steering

Support front wheels off ground. Chock rear tires, get an assistant for safty. Start engine (do not put in gear) step outside of car and manually turn wheels left and right by hand. Cut off engine. Turn key back to release steering lock. Manually turn wheels by hand again. If it requires the same ammount of strength to turn wheels, then Rack and Pinion is bypassing internally. Solution... replace rack & pinion.
