Power Steering problem

This seems to be a bigger problem than I had originally thought. My power steering dies every time I drive now. From what I understand, this is an often-observed problem with Cobalts. I am going to get this repaired, but is there anything I can do until then, short of restarting the car every 10 miles?

Oh I haven't heard about speed sensor problems. But, how would that affect power steering?

I wonder if that might have anything to do with my problem. Would there be any way to diagnose this?

Interesting. I guess the dealer will have to diagnose the problem.

Take it in for a faulty VSS(Vehicle Speed Sensor), cause that's your problem.
