I had this exact car and I had all the same problems your talking about, The pump although I can't tell you for sure is on the left side of the engine as your looking at it. If it is whining it is because it is low on fluid, also when topping it off fill it to the full mark while it is running. If it is foamy turn the steering wheel all the way left and all the right a few time to help get rid of the air. You may have to let it sit a while to let the bubble escape, check and do this again, it could be a bad pump also. The overheating problem I had with mine was a bad temp sensor for the computer. It has two temp guages and the computer uses on to activate the fan as needed. I also had another problem with mine, on the front of the intake is a small plastic elbow for a heater hose and this goes bad. Had to replace mine. Wasn't hard, and the part was cheap. Hope this helps you!

SOURCE: power steering dont work to left or right

To find out witch it is,pump or rack and pinion,break loose the presure line on the power steering pump with a wench.Start the car and turn the steering wheel back and forth,you may need to loosen the nut on the power steering hose two or three turns to get the fluid to shoot out.It should come out pretty forceful.If it doesn`t,then replace the pump.If it does come out really powerful,replace the rack and pinion.

I had a water pump put on my car a 2008 Pontiac g6. Now all of my power steering fluid have came out. What could of caused all the fluid to come out?


The installer may have knocked a rubber hose off of the power steering pump whilst repairing the water pump.
Fill the power steering pump reservoir whilst the engine is shut off, then take a strong light and watch whilst someone starts the engine, and see from whence cometh the power steering fluid.
Be prepared to receive a power steering fluid bath.
God bless your efforts.

The power steering message comes on 2006 g6 what should i do


first check and make sure your power steering fluid is up to full mark. Then check to make sure fan belt that turns the power steering pump is tight and not slipping. I suspect the belt is slipping and it probably happened when it was wet.

Power steering


the power steering pump is mounted on the front of the motor, the pump has a lid which you unscrew to add fluid. if you cant find the pump follow the serpentine belt until it goes around the pump (large Pulley) with about a four or so inch long neck. Make sure you buy the fluid made for your vehicle.
