I think in your model, the strength steering fluid reservoir is dubbed the battery ;-)Sorry, couldn"t resist. I believe you have actually the electrical power aided version of strength steering, so there is no reservoir.
Yeah, I dubbed GM"s recall and it offers the electric power assisted version also though the hand-operated states that the V6 version has actually the liquid one.I to be looking at this because sometimes, I find it difficult to turn my steering wheel. Then I witnessed the GM steering recall however it seems like my vehicle isn"t extended for that. Walk anyone else here have difficulties with the steering ~ above the 2007 Malibu?Could the be the they space waiting for an ext problems come come up because that the 2007 version then they will initiate the recall?

If your 2010 (or any Gen7 for the matter) has actually a 4-cylinder engine, you have EPS - electronic power steering. If it has a V6 it has hydraulic PS and a fluid reservoir.

I likewise have a "10 Chevy Malibu and also I believe my purpose of use is pasted the warranty coverage because that a recall. My strength steering light began coming on critical week and also has gained worse to where I need to pull over also on the interstate and also restart the car until that goes off again. Ns bought fluid too and come to uncover out there"s no reservoir for the fluid since its electrical. Rather we are going to change the "power steering pump" i m sorry is situated under the steering wheel column. It"s labeled a pump however its in truth an electric part. I hope this functions for us.
The power Steering torque sensor top top my automobile was replaced as component of the recall Feb 2016. The went out again this January and also I had to pay for the replacement. It was expensive to replace.
