There are several things that could exist here with pulling to the right. Check air pressure, jack up front wheels off the ground and roll them by hand and see if they rotate with about the same pressure as wheel bearings may need adjustment or replaced. Check all your front end steering components and linkage for loose play. If it has a straight axle the camber/caster may possibly be adjusted which if off can also create this problem. I would check these out in sequence as I have listed them. Good luck!

I power steering leak on a 1989 oldsmobile delta 88 royale 3800 engine the power steering pump is good and less than a year old the fluid is leaking sumwhere underneath the car on the driver side of the...

Pretty old car there, Reginald, (that from a guy who drives a '79 Datsun!)
You'll have to get under there for a close inspection. Raise the car up on jack stands or blocks. Hopefully, a hose fitting may have loosened where it connects to the rack and pinion gear, and only needs tightening. Or a hose may have ruptured and will need replacing. There are two hoses from the pump to the rack, a supply line and a return line. If you see fluid on one, bend it back and forth to look for a break or leak.
The worst case would be a PS fluid seal failure inside the rack and pinion, requiring a new or rebuilt unit. Just paid $240 for a rebuilt unit for a Chrysler last year, to give you an idea.
If the fluid drips from where the rack and pinion steering gear is mounted on a crossmember right behind the engine, peel back the rubber boots on both ends of the rack gear (where your tie rods enter the rack and pinion) and check for fluid there. If a lot of fluid, the seals are bad. In that case, consider a used unit, or a rebuilt, or get used to no power steering. Good luck.

When I turn my wheel either left or right it makes a loud whinning noise, and when I turn it, the powersteering fluid seems to leak out?

You have a bad Power steering Pressure hose. The whine is a lack of power steering fluid at the rack, and to continue to drive it this way will destroy the rack and pinion unit.

Steering problem, can turn left w/ powersteering assisting but when I turn right I have no powersteering assistance

Does it have disc or drum brakes? If it has disc see if the rotor has turned blue from heat most likely stuck caliper. If it has drum brakes remove drum look for pieces springs adjuster e.t.c. if everything intact turn axle see if you hear noise usually a bad or locked up hub bearing will make loud humming noise.

Powersteering will turn right but no left turning power

You have a failed steering rack, this problem is caused by a defective seal inside the steering rack, you need to replace it, make sure you flush the PS system, as it will most likely be full of debris from the failed rack unit.

sound like your powersteering pump or steering rack and pinion
could be bad.i would say it is your rack and pinion because if your pump was bad your steering would be real hard to turn instead of being jerky.jerking is usally the sign of a bad rack
