Question about 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt
This problem just started for me today. Driving down the road, power steering flashes on the digital readout and no power steering. Get home and open the hood to check the fluid, and to my surprise no pump, no fluid fill. So I turned the car off, started looking for the phone number to the dealer, let it set a couple of minutes and restarted the car, and its back to working. Problem being its all I could do to turn the car when it was out and I am no little guy. Simply stated I know my wife would not have been able to turn the car, which could have resulted in an accident that could have been fatal for her and anyone else on the road.
Just bought the car with 32k miles on it on May 15 2009 and it now has little over 33,5 on it now.
This is a recurring problem with the Cobalt. Many people have had this problem and there is no recall so far as I am aware of. I heard that the same system was under recall on the Malibu, but not the Cobalt. I am not sure if that is true or not. Anyways, the problem is that the entire steering column assembly must be replaced to fix the problem. My nephew had the same problem on his Cobalt, but luckily it was still covered under a warranty plan that he had purchased. Not good news, I know, and I am sorry. Hope this helps you and I feel your pain. Best wishes.
