Good chance you are just low on steering fluid and a $3 can will take care of your problems. If you are not mechanically inclined find a friend or co-worker who can check the fluid for you. If the fluid is not the problem (but 95% chance it is) then there really isn't a way to estimate the cost until the cause is diagnosed.

My power steering light came on on my 2005 chevy malibu it went out right away is this a problem


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. If the steering wheel is making noises when you turn or it is harder to turn the wheel now, it is. If it is not doing that, I would check my steering fluid level just to be sure. You may need to add a little fluid to it. If this all checks out, you should be fine. Just keep a close eye on it to see if it comes on again. If it does, get it looked at. If there was a problem, you would probably see a check engine light come on. When you check your fluid, make sure there are no leaks. If there are, take it to get looked at. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and thanks for using FixYa.

I can't figure out where to put power steering fluid in my 2004 chevrolet malibu


the 2004 malibu does not have a place to put transmission fluid it has a electric power steering system and does not use fluid, if you are having a problem with the power steering light chimming and lighting up this is under a recall that chevy has obligated to fix. So if your car is doing this take it to your local chevy dealership and have them to repair it for you. Hope this helps.

My cars warning light saying power steer is coming on at times and it doesnt let me turn the wheel what is the problem?


Either the belt is slipping pretty badly, or you are way-low on power steering fluid. You should really check both.

Power Steering warning light and then loose power steering. Chevy Malibu 2007


It's either the pump or the belt or both. It could be as easy as checking the level of your power steering fluid but if this isn't the case then you can always just go and get a repair manual and start on one of these two issues. I highly doubt that your lines have deteriorated in the last 3 or 4 years.

My 2006 Malibu steering wheel is going bad.


The power steering is electric on that car. It has a electric motor on the column, and a control module. There are several causes that could be the problem. You need to have it scanned to get a better idea of what to do. If you can give me the codes you get then I will be glad to advise you on what's best. Good Luck
