Power Steering & Power Steering Fluid
Power Steering is like a robot assistant that helps you turn the wheels while you exert little force. When you turn the steering wheel to go around a corner, the power steering pump jumps into action by amplifying the force generated at the wheel. The power steering pump relies on power steering fluid that is a hydraulic liquid responsible for transferring energy into the rack, pinion, and steering shaft. Although every component in the power steering system can start to show signs of wear and tear and require replacement, it is the power steering fluid that is the weakest link because it can become contaminated and will need to be exchanged. And while we’re at it, we’ll make sure that you receive Power Steering Fluid with conditioning. Power steering fluid with conditioners will help keep the power steering system quiet with conditioned seals preventing leaks.
What are the Signs of a Power Steering System Problem?
When you start to develop a problem with your power steering system or one of its main components, it will usually be obvious. Here are the five primary symptoms of a Power Steering System problem:
- Noise: high-pitched squealing, whining, or humming while turning
- Vibration or shaking in the steering wheel
- More difficult or impossible to turn the steering wheel
- Power steering fluid is darker than usual
- Power steering fluid has no smell
If you have any of the following signs of a Power Steering problem, you’ll want to schedule a Power Steering System Flush, Fluid Exchange & Conditioning Service to restore your vehicle to factory specifications.
