the power steering fluid resevoir is located on the passenger side of the engine compartment near the fire wall. mostimes in order to fill it you have to remove the altenator to remove the fill cap to add the fluid.

there are two situations that are close to what you describe.
First, is your key STUCK in the ignition? if so, there's a little panel under the steering column, open that, and feel round under there for the latch to release the key. I don't remember what the dealer SAID the issue was, but it was solved with one of many steering column replacements for a different problem.
If the key goes in and out, but won't turn the cylinder... you may have a bad cylinder, a ruined key(bent? run over by car? goobered up lands? plain worn out?) Or, your steering lock is engaged. If it's the first, that's a mechanic replacment(hopefully dealer covered). The second? get a new key. The third? Hold some tension on the steering wheel and turn the key.
Finally, if your battery is dead, or your solenoid is shot, the key won't turn/release either. Use the stuck key removal method, so you can lock your car while waiting on dealer repair.

There is a known issue with the power steering motor for some of the HHRs. When you turn the car off and back on it will probably reset, for a few minutes, days, even weeks... However, if it continues to fail, the motor, which is on the steering column under the dash, will need to be replaced. You can do it, but you may want to contact the dealer first for warranty coverage.

there is a black cap on the bottom of the windshield wiper where it pivots. Take a flat screwdriver and pop the cap off. there is a small nut. Tighten it up. Snap the cap back on. ( Make sure your wiper is in the correct position before you tighten the nut.

Quite often the 60AMP maxi fuse is blown, usually from jump starting the vehicle. Check the fuse first. There are also at least 4 different technical service bulletins from Chevy relating to steering hard to turn. This model uses an electric motor at the base of the steering column for the vehicle steering. 3 out of 4, the electrical motor assembly needs replacing. A few are safety campaigns and will still be covered even if your warranty has expired. I would have it diagnosed at a GM dealer first to see if it is still covered.
