The motor on the power steering is overheating which causes the thermal overloads to trip.
go tho the junk yard and buy a motor for a 2004 thru 206 ion or a 2004 thru 2008 chevy colbalt.
they are all the same. You may have to buy the wholle steering colum but you can remove the motor with 2 - 12mm bolts and a quick dissconnect pulg. Replace just the motor as the whole steering colum is a bit more complicated. the dealerships want you to replace the whoe steering colum, in fact that is the only way they sell the parts. It is a scam. Just the motor needs to be replaced.
I have done it on 4 different ions. try to get a motor with few as possible miles and as new as possible. I have paid between $50 and $125 for these. The dealer wants $900 fnad about $500 to install. It is very simple to do. Only 2 bolts.

Sometimes like in a BMW there is no dipstick and the fluid may be checked by a cylinder container much like the brake fluid resevoire. It would have a dipstick in the cap.

If you lay on your back and slide under the front bumper just past the radiator you will see the oil filter housing. It is on the block next to the filter housing on the right side That is where it is on my 2003 l300.

No, I don't think you need a new power steering pump. What you should have done first is have the power steering fluid flushed. I want to say that will cost you about 70 bucs, maybe a little less. Unless you are experienced with cars I would not attempt this on your own cause you don't want to damage anything else. If the symptom continues after this then you may need a new pump, but I'm pretty sure a flush will do the trick. Let me know how it turns out. Good Luck!
