I think that there is an air bubble in the power steering pump. I took it to the dealer today and they said that it was the power steering pump and just to try to bleed it more. But more unless don't worry about it.

Having a northstar I did think it had a little funny noise, must have been the steering pump I was hearing. Yep, she'* hard on gas in town if you cruise her. But you should get 22-24 MPG on the highway once the PCM/TCM get their 'learn procedure finished. They relearn your habits everytime they lose power.

What was the solution? I'm putting an 05 Northstar and PCM in my car and I'm wondering what I need to do for the VATS system. Did you just have to do the 30-minute re-learn?
