Why is your car groaning when you turn the steering wheel?
Try checking your power steering fluid. Low fluid levels can result in air being ingested and damage occurring to the power steering pump. If it is full you may need to replace the power steering pump to rid it of the groaning.

I am getting a 93 del sol car from my brother who passed away and i got in the car to turn the ignition and i can't turn it Is there a lock that i need to press so i can turn the key?
You either need to turn the steering wheel before turning the key or the ignition cylinder is bad and you need a new one. EDIT: When you pull out the key to a del sol you can continue to turn the wheel which will lock the steering wheel and the ignition , if you get into the car and can't turn the key , (iN YOUR CASE) try turning the steering wheel and the key…
There are a couple symptoms of a bad pump. If your pump completely goes out you will lose power steering altogether, and steering will become quite difficult. Another symptom is you will hear a very audible groaning sound from your car when you turn the steering wheel. Hope this helps! Before replacing the pump though check your power steering fluid level, if it is low add fluid and see if that helps.
When a car is anticipating a turn isn't the steering wheel providing the centripetal force rather than the road friction?
How do you tilt the steering wheel on a 1978 mark Lincoln you don't see the tilt stick in the same place it would be on another car?
you hold your steering wheel pointing as straight forward as possible, unless the car is sliding sideways, in that case you steer into the turn, which means if the back of your car is sliding to the right then you turn your steering wheel to the right. No sudden breaking or accelerating, just be as smooth on the throttle as possible.
when your steering wheel locks it pushes in one direction, if you turn itone way it will stay solid and if you turn it the other way it will move slightly put your key in the ignition and try to turn it while trying to turn the wheel, you will find a spot when it clicks and its unlocked and you can start the car.
If a key does not turn in the ignition, the solution could be to turn the steering wheel back and forth a few times. Sometimes the steering wheel is locked up causing the key to be stuck or to not crank the car. If this does not work, contact a mechanic to diagnose the issue. The car could be a model that has been recalled.
