It could be power steering pump noise if the fluid level is low. Check it. It could be the serpentine belt is worn out. Replace every 60,000-80,000 miles.

I believe that the Buick is equipped with "sounders" on the front brake pads, when the pad gets worn to a certain point they start to rub the rotor and make a squealing noise. Check your brakes.

Hey thanks I'm hoping its nothing big. I just checked power steering fluid it seems fine. I did see a little leak under the front of the car, kind of in front of that tire. The fluid is kinda red the power steering fluid looks the same thinking its a messed up power steering line not sure yet. Ill check out the brakes too. Thanks a lot always helpful to have other ideas and knowledge
