Why is your steering heavy in your car?

If you are finding it hard to steer your vehicle, it could be a variety of things, though most commonly you will find that the problem lies with either your power steering pump, or power steering rack. Check your power steering fluid; if it is low, top it off with the proper PS fluid. If it is not low, take your vehicle to a trusted mechanic and have them inspect the problem.

Try jiggling the steering wheel as you turn the key. Once the key is turned there is nothing left that locks the steering wheel so if you still cannot turn the wheel the problem is probably in the steering gear. Any halfway decent mechanic can repair it.

There is a clicking in the steering wheel when turning on a 01 Aurora what might the problem be?

we just bought a 2001 Aurora and it started doing the same thing......It is a common problem come to find out and we had to replace the intermediate steering shaft. I think it cost us approx. $250 to have it done and solved the problem!! Good luck . If you haven't solved your problem yet Email me at and put AURORA in the subject box so that I don't delete it. I can send you instructions on how to do the job yourself for a very few $$. Also I had a clicking noise on my 02, took it back under warranty and they changed the upper bearings in my front struts. Cured the problem. Also I did have the intermediate steering shaft problem and had it repaired under warranty. Came back after about 25K miles. Still living with it. Just had heart surgery and can't tackle the job yet. Hope tjis helps.

How do you diagnose a power steering problem in a 2005 Chevy Cobalt?

I have a 2006 Cobalt and about 6 months ago my power steering went out. There isn't really a way to check it besides taking it to a mechanic and having them hook it up to the computer.
