I had the same problem and was told by the dealer that whenever that happens to just shut the car off and then turn it back on and the problem should be corrected.  I thought that was a ridiculous answer but he was right.  He said the 2005 model has this as an ongoing issue.

Hi...
On your Malibu MAX.
The Power steering System is Electronically Controlated by a Motor installed inside of the car on the steering column.
Your car Don't use a Power steering pump.
and is Not Hydraulic, Or not work with power steering fluid.

Remember the Steering system on your car is Electric.

Ok..... I hope this help on your question.
Thank you for use fixya.

The malibu has electronic power steering, it has a electric motor that provides assistance when turning-it uses no power steering fluid.

Power sterring noise


Check your power steering fluid level. If low will cause unit to whine when turning left or right. If fluid level has gone very low you will need to bleed system. With car jacked up start engine and turn your steering wheel all the way left then right a few times. Good Luck Friend.

Yellow fluid leaking


The yellow fluid is power steering fluid, the noise is because it is low. Repair your leak asap to prevent pump damage, not to mention the safety issue when you lose the power sterring

It has a diesel engine so brakes get pressure off of power steering pump.


power assist come from power sterrig pump
brake master cylinder produces brake pressure
if no pwer assist check power sterring fluides and lines
assuming the pump is good do to steering o.k.(not mention)
if no pedal pressure check fluide level top up and depressed sevral time then check for leakage if nothing found may be flowing back to powersterring reservoir check to see if level whent up

Leaking either trans or power steer fluid. 1 or 2 drops per day under left front area


it sounds like power sterring, check level of fluid, inspect around pulley, if it is wet or oily looking, the seal is going bad, you can put some power sterring stop leak in it, it will buy you some time until you can change the pump

Power sterring is diffulcult, barely can turn sterring wheel.


Check the power steering fluid level.
If the fluid level is low, you obviously have a leak somewhere and it should be repaired. If the level is up, watch the power steering pump while the engine is running; is the pulley turning freely?
Power steering systems are hydraulic devices. The pump provides the pressure and the steering gear or rack and pinion assembly (depending on the vehicle type) applies pressure in the direction that you are turning the wheel to assist with the steering. When the hydraulics fail or when the internal components fail, your strength is the only thing turning the steering.
But start with the fluid.

Where do i put in transmission and power sterring fluids?


You put tranny fluid in the place you take out tranny stick to check tranny fluid level. You need a funnel. The power steering is the same. take off the cap and it has lines to tell you if it needs fluid. Add power steering fluid there.

It has power steering. Why does it steer so hard?


Do you hear noises while turning the wheel at low speeds or stationary? If you hear a whining noise check the power steering fluid level. A low fluid level would make a whining noise as well as cause stiff steering. If you hear a squealing noise check the power steering belt tension. A slipping belt would cause stiff steering also. If you hear no abnormal noises check to make sure the power steering belt is there. If all of the above check out ok you may have a bad power steering pump, steering gear or a blockage in a pressure line.

I would check your power steering fluid level first. If it's full your power steering pump is bad.
