The past 3 mornings I have gotten in my car and my power steering has not worked. In the afternoon and evening, however it worked just fine. Has anyone else been having this problem?


Asked by Jan 08, 2015 at 06:42 PM about the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic 2LT Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The light with the steering wheel and
an exclamation point comes on and
it is very difficult to steer. I don't think
it's temperature related because last
night it was 10 degrees colder than
the morning and the power steering
worked just fine.

Is the power steering fluid level full?

If I could find the resevoir I could answer that, but there doesnt seem to be one...

It should be one of the pulleys of the serpentine belt. I suppose there could be a magic system that doesn't work this way, but I am not aware of it.
