Common causes for the type of noise you are describing in your 1995 Buick LeSabre would be the transmission fluid pump or the torque convertor. Someone with a trained ear may need to listen to the noise to try and confirm this.

When I am driving, seems to be only low speeds and turn wheel to the left, I get a low loise. Not really a whining. Hard to explain. I checked the fluid and it did need some so I topped it off...
im getting a whining or hissing sound from drivers side engine compartment. will a faulty purge valve cause any noise? thanks n where is IT located? thanks again
