Chevy cobalt's power steering problems can be fixin about 30 minutes by (im not sure if this is a temporary fix i tryed it and have had no problem for the last month)
1. check if the power steering comes back on when you turn off then back on your car
(if it does it means your steering motor works fine)
2. you need to remove the motors power wire just un hook it your steering motor it has two bolts holding it in place under neath the dash.
3. remove the bolts that hold the black housing from the motor.
4. get a air hose and blow a couple of short bursts around the 3 points (the flat tabs on the end)
5. get a small light sanding paper not to ruff a fine one will do clean around the points and between the motor.
6 get a bruch a small one cut it so it does not break any of the connections in the motor sweep all the black dust and finish off with some blasts of air.
7 put the housing back on to the motor and screw back not to tight then screw it back under neath the dash.
8. connect the wiring back and start your car turn the wheel all the way several times so the motor can fully turn and you should neer have the steerign problem again
