There is NO power steering fluid in a 06 Cobalt. It is electric! This is a flaw that GM is not willing to come to terms with. Try topix.com for the list of over 350 people that this has happened to. Also, the dealership wants YOU to pay for it. There should be a recall. VERY dangerous!

If you 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. GM has finally called me and I am waiting on a solution.

    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!!!

    THANK YOU!!!

Either a sensor or the motor for your electrically assisted power steering is having an issue. Not something that can be diagnosed without actually touching the car with tools and talking to it's computer.

You likely have a bad power steering pump or a hose that is leaking. Do not put any fluid other than power steering fluid in the power steering reservoir. if you do you will wreck the hoses and pump. Better not drive it till you get it repaired or you may ruin something else or have an accident.

My power steering was fine then suddenly it started to go stiff and then a slight whine when turning the wheel. refilled the power steering fluid, it took a whole 1 litre jug and was fine for a few...


It should like you may have a leak if it took a whole litre. Once you fix the leak you may also find the power steering pump still makes noise. This can be repaired by replacing the pump. I hope this helps.

My headlights and stereo stopped working. All fuses check out ok and all other electronics work fine. Break lights, turn signals all ok.


No solution from me - - - I have the same problem... sort of. My headlights will come on for a short period of time If I tilt the steering wheel all the way down... Then after about 15 minutes they will turn off again... Then I tilt the wheel to the highest level and they come back on for another 15 minutes or so... The highbeams work without problem. This all began when the cable to my parking brake snapped...
