1999 Buick Regal Steering Problem when making left turns

My 1999 buick regal steering is very difficult when turning left. Feels like no power steering or steering feels like the car has stalled. No problems with right turns. Does anyone know why my car is so hard to make left turns?

    Same here, turning left acts like power steeting is dead. Also had a Chevy Eurosport same thing, seems to be a GM fault. However the Eurosport would work right after the car warmed up. Was told it was a bad seal. One that would cost more to install then just buying a new rack.

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: 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,

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.
