Are you serious... if read and google you will find over 200 more complaints. This is an issue only GM/Chevy can fix. Report it to www.safercar.gov and the Department of Consumer Affairs. I have been battling this issue for 2 months.

    I want 500 signatures for GM Chevy to do a recall

    I am asking that GM Chevrolet do a recall on there Cobalt's because they have a power steering problem. The power steering randomly goes out and it unsafe. GM Chevrolet is refusing to do a recall even though over 200 Cobalt owners have reported having the same problem with their power steering. CONTACT JUDI GASTON AT WIS TV TO VOICE YOUR COMPLAINT jgatson@wistv.com OR Call her at 803-758-1268.

    GM Chevrolet needs to take responsibility for this manufacturing problem before someone seriously gets hurt (3 deaths already) and having to replace the entire steering column which is very costly should not be paid by the consumer but by the manufacture. There needs to be a recall, so please sign this petition if you agree.

    Go to this website to sign please!!!

Not a major job just nuts and bolts. you will need a pully puller and an installer(important it goes on streight and the proper depth, and watch for the "o" ring on the high pressure line

1991 1.8 Fox Steering unusually stiff and squeek when wheel is turned. Alignment was adjusted today but the problem persists


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

The problem can be on the power steering pump itself. If the power steering pump is faulty, the power steering fluid does not circulate properly. One good reason why it squeaks when wheel is turned. Check the power steering belt too if they are not sloppy. If it is, adjust the pump to tighten the belt.

But before doing the power steering pump replacement, please do check the power steering fluid level. You may need to fill it up a little and turn the wheel from left to right. By turning the wheel to the max left and max right, the steering fluid will circulate and may get rid of the problem.

If the problem still persists after putting on new fluids, go for the power steering pump replacement. Be sure to tighten the power steering belt after replacement.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

8. Bleed the power steering system. You can do this by removing the power steering fluid cap and lifting the front of the vehicle with jack stands. Turn the engine on and turn the steering wheel slowly lock to lock. This will take 5-10 minutes as you will see the power steering fluid foam up. This is bleeding the air out of the system.

9. Inspect the power steering system for leaks.

Hi, no need to raise the engine. you can use these steps to replace your pump.

To replace the power steering pump, proceed as follows:

1. Disconnect the power steering return hose from the remote reservoir or pump. Allow the fluid to drain from this hose into a drain pan. Discard the used fluid.
2. Loosen the bracket or belt tension adjusting bolt, and the pump mounting bolt.
3. Loosen the belt tension until the belt can be removed. On some cars, it is necessary to lift the vehicle on a hoist and gain access to the power steering pump from underneath the vehicle.
4. Remove the hoses from the pump, and cap the pump fittings and hoses.
5. Remove the belt tension adjusting bolt and the mounting bolt, and remove the pump.
6. Check the pump mounting bolts and bolt holes for wear. Worn bolts must be replaced. If the bolt mounting holes in the pump are worn, pump replacement is necessary.
7. Reverse steps 1 through 5 to install the power steering pump. Tighten the belt as described previously, and tighten the pump mounting and bracket bolts to the manufacturer's specifications. If o-rings are used on the pressure hose, replace the o-rings. Be sure the hoses are not contacting the exhaust manifold, catalytic converter, or exhaust pipe during or after pump replacement.
8. Fill the pump reservoir with the manufacturer's recommended power steering fluid, and bleed air from the power steering system as described earlier.
