so the dealer and not the tech. says so. it could very well be just the power steering pump either needs a flush or the pump needs to be changed. get a couple more hands on opinions.

This power steer system is all electric. It has a motor and eletronic modle that control this system. Likely the dealer is correct.

So how much will it cost from a dealer and to do it yourself

There is more specfic info needed to look up cost. You should check with a GM dealer first with your VIN # to see if your car is involved for a recall on the steering.
