Major Problem That Recall Did Not Fix
I have an automatic 2005 Cobalt. About 5 months ago the power steering went out at slow turns just like how the recall was. Took the car in and recall was done.
Ever since the Power Steering light went out I have had a lot more issues. These issues inclue the following:
1. Power Steering displays ant the T/C light comes on. When this happens the power steering sometimes comes completly out or doesnt go out but usually it does.
2. The shifting of the car is horrible. It is an Automatic but when the car shifts it feels like someone is popping the clutch or doesnt know how to drive a manual. Its really bad as well because when slowing down sometimes it feels like the car is still accelerating and you need to stomp on the breaks.
3. Also nearly all of the electronics get messed up. The speedometer goes up and down like 15mph faster and slower than your actual speed. It just goes up and down. The heads on display thing that displays mileage also just goes all crazy and reads random things.
The only thing that fixes this is when you shut the car off for a while. Sometimes it just goes away and it is fine but other times it just stays on. I dont think it is the Transmission because when the light is not on it works completly fine. Wondering if anyone knows of this problem before i go pay the $80 for Diagnostic. I read that a 900cca battery has helped people with this sort of problem but I dont know if that is just a temporary problem or what.
Sorry for such a long read.
