I WORK FOR A CHEVROLET DEALER. THE THINGS THAT WE CHANGE MOST OFTEN IN THE HHR ARE THE RACK, INTERMEDIATE STEERING SHAFT, AND THE STEERING COLUMN.

IF THE STEERING IS CUTTING OUT IT'S USUALLY IN THE STEERING CONTROL MODULE. THERE IS USUALLY A CODE WHEN THE STEERING CUTS OUT. UNFORTUNATELY THE ONLY FIX IS REPLACING THE STEERING COLUMN.

MOST OF THE STEERING NOISES COME FROM THE RACK AND INTERMEDIATE SHAFT. BUT THE COLUMN WILL ALSO MAKE NOISE BUT IT WILL SOUND DIFFERENT.

My volvo steering locked up on me while driving can you tell me whats wrong


Hi Sherita

Obviously this could be very dangerous

Pull in to a Volvo dealer & get it checked

There could be a re call of your model if this is a known Volvo problem.
Volvo pride themselves on their Vehicle Safety.
Dealer shouldn't charge for a possible manufacturing problem

Call a GM dealer for the number as these have changed since then. A good qualified Tech with a hi-end scanner should be able to find the problem.

I need to add power steering fluid but i can't figure out where


let me guess your power steering comes on and dings when you first start it and your steering is hard to turn, or it comes on while your driving, these cars dont use fluid they run off of a electric motor for the steering, but good news these cars have a recall on the steering just take it to your nearest chevy dealer and tell them what is happening and they should fix it at no cost to you, just takes them about 4 hours to fix, My wife has the same car and we just got ours fixed 2 months ago. hope this helps.

How do I fix the power steering n my mazda rx8 04?


My RX8 had the same problem. First, change your battery cable ends. On the Positive cable there is a white wire that powers the power steering. It probably has a bad connection at the battery post. I cut the end off my rx8 and just put a regular battery cable end on it and my problem was solved.

I was cut off and can not find my way back into your site


I finally figured out on my own if I hit End Session I would be asked to go back in if I wanted. I went back in and the third guy knew as little as the other guy did.

No, I did not find a way to fix my problem with my car.

I was not satisfied at all with your very confusing site and would like a refund.
