Have a mechanic check lower control arm bushing at the rear of the control arm.It is a horizontal bushing retained by a vertical bolt clamping it to frame.The tire will move more forward and back more than it should during braking. canuck mechanic.

SOURCE: power steering on 2006 chevy cobalt

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!

sounds like your steering column lock is binding you need to slightly turn the steering one way or the other while turning the key at the same time. this happens if the steering wheel is turned after removing the key. or when parked against a curb.

Roaring noise with my 2006 Chevy Cobalt?


while the wheel bearings still feel tight they are the cause of your problem, after a collision most cars suffer from this problem depending on the speed of the accident the forces encountered during a sudden stop causes intense stress and fatigue on the bearings

I own a 2006 Chevy Cobalt and the steering wheel shakes uncontrollably when the mile exceeds passed 50MPH. There is also a noise present that sounds like a wind tunnel of some sort. Thanks!


You need to get the tires checked out.You could just need a balance on them.As far as the noise.It is hard to tell you what to look for without actually hearing the noise.Does it sound like it is outside the vehicle,front,rear,tires,does it change at different speeds,does it do it all the time,warm cold?These are the things you have to find out.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Chevy Cobalt turn signal issues


There is a plastic piece inside the steering column that will automatically turn the turn signals off when the steering wheel is turned back to 'straight ahead'. This plastic piece can break, and if it does, they can only be turned off manually, as you are doing. I have not worked on anything as new as your cobalt to repair this, but on older cars it involves removing the steering wheel and turn signal assembly. You must also deal with the air bag. Don't attempt this repair unless you have a manual to follow to disarm the air bag and properly remove the steering wheel and other components.

Key won't go into the ignition


This is exactly what happened to my truck last night. The steering wheel moves freely. I had a hard time putting the key in the ignitition. The ignition will not turn. Neither will the shifter. It seems like it is not in park but then how did the key come out? My car is a 2004 Chevy 2500HD. Did you even get a solution to your issue?
