There is a GM Special Service Bulletin covering the steering system on your G6. The steering system on your G6 is covered under warranty for a period of 10 years or 100,000 miles regardless of whether or not you are the original owner. The special service bulletin reference number is 10183. The Date of issue is July 20, 2010.

If your vehicle is out of this extended warranty period, I can only tell you that you must scan the computer system that controls the electronic power steering assist in order to get an idea of what is causing the problem.

Power steering pump cap to fill where is it located on Pontiac GT G6 06 3.5 v6 engine


Maybe it doesn't have a place to put power steering fluid ! Could be it has Electronic Power Steering (electric )
Power Steering Motor
The power steering motor is a 12-volt brushless DC reversible motor with a 65-amp rating. The motor assists steering through a worm gear and reduction gear located in the steering column housing.

How to add power steering fluid to 2008 pontiac g6


If you can't find a power steering fluid reservoir under the hood in the engine compartment your G6 could have Electronic Power Steering . If you look up under the dash below the steering column you will see a electric motor mounted to the steering column !
The power steering system reduces the amount of effort needed to steer the vehicle. The system uses the powertrain control module (PCM), body control module (BCM), power steering control module (PSCM), discrete battery voltage supply circuit, steering shaft torque sensor, steering wheel position sensor, power steering motor, driver information center (DIC), and the serial data circuit to perform the system functions. The PSCM and the power steering motor are serviced as an assembly and are serviced separately from the steering column assembly. The steering shaft torque sensor and the steering wheel position sensor are not serviced separately from each other or from the steering column assembly. The steering column assembly does not include the power steering motor and module assembly.

As long as the car is not over 160000 Km GM should fix it they where a recall on them for the Pontiac g6. GM Acknowledges Power Steering Problem On Cars48 Percent Of Steering Complaints Filed Are For GM Cars

Forty-eight percent of steering complaints filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are for GM cars.

More than a million cars made by General Motors on the road right now can potentially lose power steering. There have been accidents and injuries because of it. CBS 2 Investigator Dave Savini looked into the problem months ago. Now, GM is finally taking action.

Beverly Sinkular owns a 2006 Pontiac G6. She says the power steering repeatedly fails. One time, her granddaughter was in the car when she lost control of the wheel and was nearly in an accident.

"I was struggling with it," she said.

That is when she began having serious concerns that her power steering malfunction might happen to other Pontiac G6 owners. She was right.

CBS 2's investigative team uncovered hundreds of G6 owners with power steering failures. We discovered that 439 steering complaints involving the 2006 Pontiac G6 have been filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The reports were filled with complaints of repeated power steering failures; drivers losing control of their vehicles; accidents, and even injuries.

Owners complain the car is dangerous, repair costs are not being covered, and they say a recall is needed.

"It's just a horrible thing for anyone to have to go through," Sinkular said.

When CBS 2 showed Sinkular the giant pile of G6 complaints, she asked, "Why isn't Pontiac doing something about it?"

Before contacting CBS 2, Sinkular says she went to her dealership and was told her power steering malfunction was an isolated failure. She was forced to pay $630 to get it fixed.

"They told me that it wasn't a recall and I was no longer under warranty, so therefore, it's my bill," she said.

Sinkular thinks there may be more G6 model years affected. Her neighbor has experienced similar problems, except with his 2009 model. The man, who does not want to be identified, says his power steering has not gone out yet, but the warning light goes off intermittently.

When asked if she believed an investigation was warranted, Sinkular responded, "Absolutely."

CBS 2 contacted GM about Sinkular's case, as well as the hundreds of other complaints we found.

A spokesman acknowledged that there have been steering problems since the company switched from a hydraulic to an electric system, and admits that 48 percent of steering complaints filed with NHTSA are for GM cars.

The GM spokesman also said there is no safety issue because the cars can be controlled during power steering failures.

However, to satisfy customers, they are extending the warranty on 1.1 million cars, so if the power steering fails, the repair costs will be covered. Letters to vehicle owners are being mailed by GM.

In Sinkular's case, GM refunded her repair cost, but she is still concerned.

"I'm afraid that there's going to be a terrible, terrible accident with it," she said.

The extended warranties will cover the 2005, 2006 and 2008 models of the Pontiac G6, Chevrolet Malibu and Malibu Maxx; the 2008 Saturn Aura and the 2004-2007 Saturn ION.

The previous safety recall from February 2010 covers the 2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt; 2007-2010 Pontiac G5; 2005-2006 Pontiac Pursuit (Canada), and 2005-2006 Pontiac G4 (Mexico).

Cant find the location for Power Steering Pump for Pontiac G6 2.4L


That's because there is no hydraulically assisted power steering on 4-cyl model G6.The assist comes from a shaft-mounted servo motor. Completely electrical. Good luck with that thing as they are plagued with problems.

Does the power steering cap on a pontiac G6 have a picture of a steering wheel and waves (indicating fluid)? Is it on the passengers side on top of the motor?


Hello! The power steering reservoir cap is black and does have a yellow picture of a steering wheel on it. It would indeed be located on the passenger's side of the engine, about halfway on the length of the motor. However, if you are unable to locate yours, you have a G6 equipped with the electronic steering system, which has no reservoir. A good way to determine this is if your car has the V6 engine, if it does - you have the electronic system.

Hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa!
