Question about 2003 Buick Century
First off, verify that the power steering reservoir has the right amount of fluid and that it looks clean (not dirty brown or black). If so, try burping the reservoir to get any air out. Just start the car with the cap off and turn the wheel lock to lock, back and forth several times. This will force any air out of the system. If the fluid is low, top it off and take a drive to see if it's cured. If the fluid is filthy, use a turkey baster to **** out as much as you can, refill it with new fluid, burp the system again to circulate the fluid, and repeat the drain and refill procedure - do it a few times to try and get as much of the old stuff out as you can.
If you still have a problem, you should inspect (or have inspected) the rack and pinion, power steering pump and pressure lines, and also the bushings in your front suspension, as well as the inner and outer tie rods - any of those could cause the problem you're having.
