Question about 2002 Buick Regal
When my Regal is cold and I turn left, there is a loud groaning noise. As soon as the car straightens out it stops in a few seconds. There are no fluid leaks under the car. I have observed similar sounds from other Regals.
The groaning noise is the power steer pump operating under duress. I would suggest having the front suspension checked for any seized or failing ball joints or control arm problems. Most suspension guys will give the undercarriage a look over for you for free to check for any failing/unsafe parts. The engine belt driving the power steer pump should also be checked in case it needs adjustment.
