Question about 1991 Buick Regal

Open Question

Steering wheel locking while driving on a ver hot dry day

I recently bought a well- kept 1991 Buick Regal Limited with 88000 miles. I was driving yesterday on a winding road, suddenly going round a curve the steering wheel locked, after a few seconds I managed to get it off on the shoulder of the road. I turned it off and restarted; the car started but the engine had a humming sound...I did not drive it (my 86 yr old mother was in the car); we called the tow truck; it was a very hot, dry day (102')but the car was not overheating even though I had exited the highway about 5 miles before. The mechanic shop did a diagnostic and said they could not find any reason for what happened. Why is this happening? What could I do to prevent this from happening again...maybe on the highway next time?

Eventually problem got bad enough that it could be located. In this case it was a bad Ignition switch module.

I have a 1997 buick regal gs 3.8 supercharge
the car would not start some days and it would quit while running. the instrument guage lights would come on and when i turn on the turn signal the guages would go crazy and the buzzer would sound. I replaced the ingition switch for 102.00 from auto zone and that fixed the problem

SOURCE: my 1994 regal grandsport cuts off

I had this exact problem several years ago: my car would just shut off while both braking and turning, usually on exit ramps. I got very good at shifting to neutral/turning the car off and on/shifting into drive all while suffering through the lack of power steering. It usually freaked my passengers out.

It ended up being the EGR valve, a costly but very necessary fix.

Buick Regal supercharger 1998, while driving along the steering wheel tighten hard to turn, after pouring power steer fluid under the hood, the temperature light came on,the car ran hot, no smoke.


Do you mean the engine overheat warning? The power steering problem is most likely a defective steering rack, they always act up when hot due to internal seal leakage and fluid bypassing the seal.

1978 Buick regal limited need to replace turn signal switch


All GM cars used the same steering column and switch, only the steering wheel design varied. If you go to this link and follow the instructions you will get the part replaced in about an hour. You will need a GM lock ring remover tool and a steering wheel puller, you can get both tools from Autozone or on line for about $20.00 I think. Please rate my Free help for Fixya. Thanks

Buick Regal problem-help!!!!!!!!


Have you done the basic maintenance. Spark plugs, oil change, ect.? As for the fans, if you have a/c one of them should only come on when your a/c is on. The other is regulated by a relay so when your car reaches a certain temp it kicks on.
