Question about 2002 Buick Regal

Loud groaning noise while turning left

When my Regal is cold and I turn left, there is a loud groaning noise. As soon as the car straightens out it stops in a few seconds. There are no fluid leaks under the car. I have observed similar sounds from other Regals.

Hi

The groaning noise is the power steer pump operating under duress. I would suggest having the front suspension checked for any seized or failing ball joints or control arm problems. Most suspension guys will give the undercarriage a look over for you for free to check for any failing/unsafe parts. The engine belt driving the power steer pump should also be checked in case it needs adjustment.

more than likely it is just low on power steering fluid. system might have air in it now. so after fill power steering unit to proper level driver the car and check fluid level again. and add more if needed . I believe car should have motor running for when checking fluid, same as transmission.

There is a noise coming from the right-front wheel area during a left turn. It almost sounds like a tire-rub on the inner wheel-well cover, but it also makes this same noise when stationary while turning...


I had this same problem and the dealer could not reproduce the noise when I would take it in to get looked at. (during the day when the temperature was warm) So I decided to leave it over night and they test drove it in the morning when the temperature was cold and they heard the noise. It ended up bing the steering rack.

My 2003 Buick Regal makes a load whinning sound when I turn. WHat could be causing this?


Hi, it could be a wheel bearing. if you turn left and you hear it it will be your right front bearing and visa-versa. could be the power steering belt that needs replacing, good luck with it.

2002 buick rendezvous groans when turning


The fluid in the versa trak AWD in the rear is old and needs to be drained and refilled. After you drain and refill it, make a bunch of sharp left and right hand turns, then drive it for 10 minutes. Drain and refill it for the second time and problem solved. Use only versa trak fluid available at any GM dealership. There is TSB on this now at the Buick dealership.

Right turn loud groaning


I would say you have bad wheel bearings on the front. More noise turning right means the left is REALLY bad.

High pitched sound just started. It goes REEEEEE!!


It sounds like your power steering pump as you said, but I would start with changing the main drive belt. I have come across this same problem before. If you change out the belt and you still have this problem, remove the belt and start the engine. Turn the wheels left and right and listen for the noise. If the noise is gone then put the belt back on and check again. If the noise comes back then you have a component problem. I have seen the belt tensioner to make noises as you describe. I hope this helps you. Let me know if this is helpful to you.
