The first place to start would be to have the engine controls scanned for codes. this is an electronic system, and has no hydraulics. it is computer controlled and will store a fault code in the computer. also, you should contact your dealer with your VIN#, as there has been a recall issued for many of these cars regarding these electronic steering issues. good luck!

    i would like to stress that this car DOES NOT use a hydraulic steering system, it is a computer controlled electronic system. there is no fluid. you need to scan the system to start.

Hi,

First you need to check the fluid level of the power steering unit. Thats ok then you need to check that the fanbelt is not broken.
If thats ok then you have a problem with the power steering pump itself which will need to be removed and repair by a hydraulics specialist.

Hope this helps

Where do you put power steering fluid in a 2007 malibu Ltz.


Power Steering Fluid Power steering pumps are ordinarily lubricated with power steering fluid. Use the correct type for the vehicle. Check the owner's manual if you are unsure.

Usually it's a belt driven power steering fluid pump that has hoses that lead to the rack and pinion steering.

Unscrew the cap and add power steering fluid to it there.

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.
