    Who asked for a speed sensor? Check all front end components (including steering box and control arm bushings) for looseness. When you find out what's loose, fix it.

I have a 2001 Suburban and I know that there was a recall on the Half shaft...mainly for noises, but I would look online for a recall list for your particular year. The Half shaft is what your stearing wheel is hooked to under the hood. Also, I would check the shocks and other stearing components.

What is code D0131 on a 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer LS?

Don't know where you came up with this one D0131 , No such code . Now if you mean a P0131 it's for a O2 sensor
DTC P0131 HO2S Circuit Low Voltage Sensor 1
Front Steering Position Sensor Circuit

The electronic brake control module (EBCM) receives multiple direct inputs from the steering wheel position sensor. These circuits include, two digital square wave input signals A and B. Phase A or B should toggle high and low every 2 degrees of steering wheel rotation. . The EBCM also receives one analog steering wheel position input on the steering wheel position sensor signal 1 circuit, and is compared to the digital circuits for fault detection. The analog portion of the steering wheel position sensor is supplied a 5-volt reference and low side return circuits from the EBCM. Ignition voltage and ground circuits are supplied directly to the digital portion of the steering wheel position sensor.

The steering in my 98 Buick Century is hard to turn at low speeds. Is this a steering pump issue or the rack and pinion?

Your PS pump is fine.

This vehicle has:

Variable-assist power steering: A power steering system that uses valves and speed sensors to vary the amount of steering assist according to engine or road speed. At slow speeds more steering assist is delivered and steering the wheels is easier; necessary for parking, etc.. At higher speeds, steering assist is reduced and more steering effort is required to steer the car, giving the driver greater feel of the road. Also known as Speed-sensitive power steering.

Loss of current to the magnetic coils would cause a loss of power assist at low speed. Coil resistance can be checked with an ohmmeter, and should read about two ohms. An infinite (open) reading indicates a bad coil (requires replacing the rack since the coils are not serviceable). Checking for shorts between both sides of the coil assembly and rack housing is also recommended.

Speed sensitive steering

there is a sensor at the bottom of the steering wheel, this senses the speed of the vehicle which in turns allows the steering to be easy at idle and firmer at higher speeds. sometime this sensor will go "open" at higher speeds which will cause the steering wheel to feel like it "drops" at times.
