You are going to need a shop to replace the missing power steering components and the belt. Not an owner service item unless the owner has many tools and skills. On a car that old you may want to replace the belt tensioner while you are at it.

I was driving my 1999 Saab 9-5 today, it was raining, right after going through a puddle, my power steering stopped working, the battery light came on, so I pulled into a gas station, turned the engine...


LOL, nooooooo. You didn't hurt anything. In fact, you identified a problem by going through that puddle. You need a new serpentine belt and/or tensioner pulley. It sounds like the spring in your tensioner pulley may be worn, and not pulling your serpentine belt tight enough. Now, THAT being said, there MAY be yet another issue going on. While I don't doubt for a minute that you need 1) a new serp. belt, 2) a new tensioner pulley, and 3) a can of belt dressing, you may also want to check (while the old serp belt is off during the changing) that all your pulleys are spinning freely. Especially your AC compressor pulley. If your AC is low on refridgerant, it can lock up the pulley. The serp belt drives your power steering pump, your alternator, your AC pump, water pump, etc. If one pulley siezes up, the tensioner is weak, and the belt gets wet, NOTHING will turn. Hence the dead battery (alternator not turning), no power steering (pump not turning), and more importantly no coolant circulation (water pump not turning), which can cause serious overheating problems.

What does Volt mean if I was that on my 1997 Lumina and my steering is tight and hard to turn


Check your drive belts, volt mean alternator not charging, and by what your saying it's not a bad alternator but a broken or missing belts.

Where is the power steering fluid located on a 1999 buick regal?


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. If you have your owner's manual there is a picture on page ;6-29 of your power steering fluid reservoir. If you do not have your owners manual download this manual:
http://www.extendedgmwarranty.com/owners-manual/buick/1999-Buick-Regal.pdf and go to page 269 to see the picture. It will be in front of the engine driven by a belt on the left front side closer to the fender well and radiator. (Left front corner of the engine) NOTE the full mark on the dip stick.

On another note... with the car NOT RUNNING.... place a finger on the power steering drive belt mid-span between the drive pulleys and check for deflection. If it mores more than 1 inch as you gently depress the belt.;.. then the belt is loose and it will need re-tensioned. Most of the time this is the cause of the noise your hearing.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Kelly

Location of the brake fluid input


the brake fluid resivoir is above the master cylinder on the firewall. so on the left side near the windshield. the power steering resivoir is closer to the front end and is distinguished by not being connected to the master cylinder..

Power steering fluid


the power steering resivoir is located onto of the power steering pump, which has a pully driven by the belt(s). the resivoir is small with a cap the unscrews and a mini dipstick attached to the inside of the cap.
