1994 Buick LeSabre has clicking noise in steering column when reversing.


Could it be coming from the dash??? That car might be old enough to have a speedo cable. Another thought, I know some Caddys that had an automatic park brake release. You had to put it in gear for the Park brake to release. Hope that helps.

My 1995 Buick Lesabre has a low humming noise. It started right after I got my oil changed. It sounds just like the noise a car makes when you don't have any power steering fluid in your car and...


I would go back to the oil change place. Fluid levels are their responsibility and you should have a trail of fluid from the leak. If you had no problems before the oil change and immediately after you have problems, then they are the people to talk to.

There are some basic systems that are to be checked when doing an oil change. Power steering fluid, washer fluid, and auto trans fluid are normal items the shops keep on hand to put in cars.

Now cars with rear differentials and standard transmissions are checked on request. Your problem is something that should normally be checked by a shop doing an oil change.

Some of the better shops grease the fittings, check the belts, spray the battery connections and check the Antifreeze.

If the Power steering was out of fluid, the pump may be damaged. There are also different fluids to use for each car company.

Please rate my info.

2002 Buick LeSabre steering noise when turning left-what could it be?


The whine is an indicator the power steering unit is low in most cases. If the fluid is at the proper level then the power steering pump is most likely going out.

1997 buick lesabre steering locks up & can't turn left & whining


very possible that the pump has failed (seized ) internally so get it checked out at an accredited power steering specialist shop
if it does not produce pressure then the steering will lock or be extremely heavy to turn

1997 Buick LeSabre has squeak noise coming from right front.


More likely this is a wheel bearing or CV joint than suspension components.

One good indication is if, when your making a right turn or accelerating, there is a shudder or shaking in the steering wheel then its likely a wheel bearing.

Another good indicator can be found when you jack up the suspicious wheel. Put one hand on the top of the wheel and one on the bottom and pull back and forth. If the wheel makes a clunking noise and moves in either direction, then wheel bearing is shot.
