Take a look at the tie rod ends or you might have a problem with a tire mounted on the front. Rotate those tires to the back of the car and see if it goes away or moves to the back of the vehicle.

It sounds like a front axle that is about to go. If it does it when you are turning right it is probaly the left one that is bad. What you can do is grab the axle and push and pull it side to side or in and out and it will make a noise usually if it is bad. Do both of them so you can tell. If it does I would suggest getting it fixed ASAP I had a bad experience when mine went.
#4 of 38 Buick Regal front end noise
Apr 23, 2008 (3:10 pm)
Just recently my 2000 Buick Regal began making a noise in the right front end. It gets worse as I increase speed and gets a bit louder when I move the wheel left or right. I replaced the tires but still have the noise. Any advice on where to start looking?

#6 of 38 Passenger floor leak
Aug 20, 2007 (8:30 am)
I have a 2002 Regal, bought used, that for the first year had no problems with water. Suddenly I'm finding water on the passenger side floor every time it rains.
I have found that when the car is parked level or with the nose facing down it doesn't matter how hard it rains everything stays dry. Only when the nose is facing up does the water come in.
This happened suddenly and there was no accident, work on the car or firewall area. The interior filter had not been touch as well. I have been told that there is a "gutter" or railing that runs along the firewall that is designed to run off water to the side. It is possible that it could have fallen off.
The water seems to collect towards the center of the car but leaks out at it's lowest point, the far right side near the fender wall. I have seen discussions about this problem from a few years ago but no one seemed to have an answer. Any updates?

It can be one of several things but I have found the most common one being the cabin air filter being plugged or not seated properly. It is located under the plastic guard on the passenger side just above the firewall of the car. there are a couple of plastic screws that hold it in place and after removing them you can lift off the plastic shroud.
The other problem you might have is a leaking heater core. Is the leak water or does it smell like coolant? Does the floor get wet after a rain storm or is it always wet and smell like coolant?

#10 of 38 3.8 cooling system
Jul 13, 2006 (1:13 am)
I own the 1997 Rag LS and the car is constantly overheating. It is running at the 3/4 mark all the time. The cooling system seems to be clogging. I have flushed it and chagne d the heater core, and radiator twice. Is this a commom occurance on the 3.8 when it hit this mileage??
How can I fix it?
