Re: 98 malibu power steering problem, sick. possible recall?

Call your dealer for any info on recalls or TSB's.

At over 13 years old it could be a hose has given out. Replace it if so and consider replacing all the other hoses (should be a total of 2 but might be 3 or 4) since they're as old and worn out, too.
