It sounds like your steering cylinder has bad seals and oil is leaking around the seal. This is an internal leak and would not be visible.

Impala 2011 steering power noise

Have you checked the level of the power steering fluid if it is low it can cause a noise similar to what you described. The power steering pump could be starting to fail and making the noise. I would suggest checking the power steering fluid level and if low, they make some fluid that has power steering fluid conditioner, supposed to help extend the life of the power steering pump, if it is low you need to follow the lines from the pump and see if you can find a leak anywhere. also I would take notice of the color of the power steering fluid, if not too much trouble maybe take a picture of the fluid and upload it here, the fluid can break down and need to be replaced.

Key locked in ignition 2007 impala

Get a helper---turn on key--then off---wiggle wheel back & forth while helper tries to pull out key. Don't twist key! If nogo--tow to garage or have mechanic remove steering column shell & check or fix mechanism.

I have a 2007 Monte carlo lt and my power steering goes out when i go thru water. It has done this more then 4 times in the last 6 months. I am lucky i wasnt going fast or in traffic. dealership said it...

The Dealer may be right would want to check the belt and tensioner to make sure they are working correcly. I would do this ASAP. any garage can do that for you it does not have to be the dealer, however if you have warrenty they may need to fix it to be covered under a warrenty.

2007 Impala SS with 30,000 miles mysteriously jumps from cd/aux to radio...

Do you have the steering wheel controls? If so, my guess is the "source"button on the steering wheel control maybe sticking. If I remember, I'll look at my Impala and see if the contol can be disconnected at the steering wheel.

2007 chevy impala

Pricing vary, depending on where you live and if you want it done at a dealership or at a local shop.It would be about 1hour of labor +price of the hose+power steering fluid. Dealer charges about $70.00 an hour.
You can call the dealer ask how much to change the hose. Also a local shop can gave you an estimate.
