SOURCE: My 2006 Malibu steering wheel is going bad.

The power steering is electric on that car. It has a electric motor on the column, and a control module. There are several causes that could be the problem. You need to have it scanned to get a better idea of what to do. If you can give me the codes you get then I will be glad to advise you on what's best. Good Luck

SOURCE: THE POWER STEERING LOCKS AND IT IS SO HARD TO TURN

The power steering is electric. There is no pump and no fluid to check. Most people end up with a new steering column installed. The electronic steering is what helps the car get such great gas mileage though. This is a big problem with these cars and you need to take it to the dealer. Hopefully GM is on there way with a recall. If they dont do something i will never buy another gm product again!

This can be VERY expensive I would first contact GM customer assitance the phone number should be in your owners manual.Maybe depending on your milage they will split the cost with you.I worked 20 plus years for GM and they helped alot my customers.

Can't find power steering compartment


Hello Nicole.
I am JuggerBot and I will help you with your question.
If you can't find where to add fluid then your model is equipped with electric power steering.
If you are finding it hard to steer you probably need to have your Pontiac checked for electrical issues in the steering.
There have been recalls on some models.
It may be worth your time to call your local dealer to see if there are any outstanding recalls on your car.

I have a 2006 malibu and the power steering light comes on and it is hard to steer. please help. Thanks


If the power steering pump is low on fluid, The belt is broke or came off, or the pump just stopped working, it would cause those symptoms.
First check the belt.
If the belt is there, check the fluid level in the pump, if its low add some PSF and check again.
if the fluid level is up to factory standards and you have went through this check list,
the pump is bad.

Check the operation of the power steering system.
Check the power steer drive pump belt is ok,

No oil leaks should be evident on the power steer system.
