You may need to bleed the power steering system. The only problem is you may need the special tools from GM? Here is the bulletin.

TECHNICAL

Bulletin No.: 08-02-32-004B

Date: October 06, 2008

Subject:
EI08118 - Power Steering Whine/Growl Noise (Bleed Power Steering System)

Models:
2006-2009 Chevrolet Impala, Malibu
2006-2009 Pontiac G6
2007-2009 Saturn AURA

Supercede:

This bulletin is being revised to end the need for engineering information and to provide field fix information. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 08-02-32-004A (Section 02 - Steering).

Condition

Some customers may comment on a whine or growl noise coming from the power steering.

Correction

DO NOT REPLACE THE POWER STEERING PUMP OR RACK/GEAR.

Fill and bleed the power steering system using the following procedure:

Power Steering System Bleed Procedure Using J 42485 (MityVac) (or equivalent)

Important: Maintain the fluid level throughout the bleed procedure.

1. Fill the fluid reservoir to the FULL COLD level. Leave the cap off.

2. Raise the front wheel off the ground.

3. Attach the J 43485 (Adapter) to the J 23738 (Mityvac), or equivalent. Place the J 43485 on/in the pump reservoir filler neck (refer to graphic). Apply a vacuum of 20 in Hg MAXIMUM.

Note: If the J 43485 (adapter) is not available, an equivalent can be made using a rubber seal/stopper and brass fitting.

Important: An assistant is needed for the next step.

4. Apply vacuum while turning the steering wheel lock to lock. Maintain 20 in Hg while turning. Using a clear line will allow you to see bubbles evacuating system. Stop when no more bubbles are seen.

5. Wait five minutes. Typically vacuum drop is 2-3 in Hg. Verify the fluid level. If the fluid level is low, fill to the full line.

6. Reinstall the cap. Start and idle the engine.

7. Turn the engine off. Verify the fluid level. If the fluid level drops, add fluid. Repeat Steps 4 and 5 until the fluid level stabilizes.

8. Start and idle the engine. Turn the steering wheel 180 - 180 in both directions five times. DO NOT TURN TO LOCK.

9. Switch the ignition off. Verify the fluid level.

10. Install the cap. The bleed procedure is complete.
