Normal Wear and Tear

Steering components normally wear out over time and require periodic replacement. How long steering components last depends on the type of vehicle, how and where it is used, and if regular maintenance is performed. Regular steering inspections and maintenance are critical to maintain vehicle safety and decrease repair costs.

Power Steering

Power steering system consists of a pump, fluid reservoir, pressure and return hoses and steering gear or steering box. The pump, which is driven by the engine with an accessory drive belt, consists of an impeller, pressure valve, and fluid reservoir. Pump pressure builds only when the engine is running. The pump impeller turns, picking up hydraulic fluid from the reservoir and feeding it to the steering gear under pressure through the pressure line. The fluid is then returned to the fluid reservoir through the non-pressurized return line.

Power Steering Maintenance

Your vehicle's power steering system operates at very high pressures, 800–2000 psi, and very high temperatures. This leads to power steering fluid (oil) breakdown over time. Fluid breakdown causes increased wear and expensive power steering repairs. Just like engine oil your power steering fluid requires periodic replacement. Symptoms of power steering problems include groaning and whining noises, erratic steering, and fluid leaks.

Solution

Since most vehicles do not have a power steering fluid filter a powerful power steering cleaner is added before draining oil fluid to help clean the system and flush out contaminates. The cleaner dissolves varnish and gum buildup in the power steering system and suspends contaminates in the old fluid so they are flushed out. All old fluid is drained and power steering system flushed with new power steering fluid for both conventional and rack and pinion steering systems. The benefit is a quieter-operating, longer lasting power-steering system.
