You are watching: 2008 chevy malibu power steering fluid

I am trying to locate the Fluid Reservoir on my 2008 Malibu. I have 2.4L ecotec.Can anyone help?I have a funny shake in the steering column when I am sitting at a stoplight. Even when I am driving it seems to jump out of my hands.Not sure what is going on but would like to check the fluid levels before I send the car in to be serviced.
That would explain why I could not locate it!Where would I locate the sensor? Is it easy to change out?
10183A covers the replacement of the motor for "08"s 10 years/150,000 miles. If you PM me the last 8 of the VIN, I"ll verify coverage.
Is this something that a home repair guy can do or must it go back to the dealer? This is really starting to bounce around now?How much would the cost be in Canada for the repairs if it did?

My 08 did the exact same thing. Take it to the dealer, make them drive it and see it. It"s not considered to be under a standard warranty, but some sort of "special coverage".(I think that means it doesn"t happen to all Malibu"s, but if it happens to yours they will fix it)They replaced the power steering motor, but I think it was my sensor still. The steering wheel doesn"t shake anymore, but it feels loose as hell now...They drove it once and said they found nothing. I told them I would come put more gas in it and to please drive it again, it was a safety issue for me. It would shake and slip going 5 mph, or 75 mph.No fees unless you get a rental!
