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.

Steering shudders when turning at low speeds

Please check you power steering fluid. It should be described in the owner's manual if you're not familiar.

I have a 99 Buick Regal, it hesitates and even stalls out. I had the oil and filters changed as well as the fuel filter. It is still hesitant and feels like it wants to dye. When I changed the fuel filter...

A combination of problems could be causing your hesitation/stall issue:
  1. Bad MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor
  2. Bad TPS (Throttle Position Sensor)
Getting a free diagnostic test to pull codes will make narrowing down your problem a bit easier. Most chain auto parts stores will do a complimentary diagnostic test. The most common cause with a car that stalls when warm is the TPS. It controls your idling speed under all conditions. Even replacing the MAF alone doesn't always fix the problem although it may show up as being problematic. The 2 parts basically go hand in hand with your particular problem.

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,

1999 Regal GS -stalls, starting trouble, won't shift now

the batt is suspect...take it to autozone, or other place, they'll check it out free......the shifting out of park is a seperate issue, the pawl for the steering/shifter is not working properly....did you notice if the steering wheel would turn when the shifter is stuck?....probably not....when this happens try to turn the wheel back and forth-not hard but not gently- a little graphite dust sprayed in there would help.......hope this helps you out

1999 Buick Regal power steering defect when turning left.

Could be a few things....binding on the upper strut mounts if you have front wheel drive...the rack and pinion, or the steering knuckle.

Best thing to do would be to take your car to a reputable garage (not the one that "fixed" your car the first time!) and have it checked out.
