What Does Power Steering Fluid Do?

Power steering fluid is a crucial component in making the driver’s job easier and safer. It provides hydraulic assistance to the steering system when the driver turns the steering wheel. The nature of the hydraulic system allows the effort applied by the driver to be multiplied many times to help turn the wheels.

Dirty, neglected power steering fluid can; reduce steering effectiveness and cause abnormal noises, and harden seals and cause leakage, leading to wear. It can also cause expensive repairs of power steering components.

Power Steering Fluid service will help rejuvenate your power steering and includes; flushing the entire system several times over with new fluid to loosen varnish and other contaminants from the system. Then, refilling the system with the correct manufacturer recommended fluid.
