POWER STEERING


Your vehicle's power steering system is very complex and is perhaps the most overlooked of all vehicle systems requiring regular maintenance. It is an extremely complicated and sophisticated hydraulic mechanism. The system usually contains a power steering pump, steering gear & linkages, drive belts, bearings, valves, hoses and seals. Power steering is a system for reducing the steering effort on cars by using an external power source to assist in turning the wheels.

Most vehicles have power steering and the trend to front wheel drive, greater vehicle mass and wider tires means that modern vehicles would be extremely difficult to maneuver at low speeds (e.g. when parking) without assistance. The power steering fluid should be exchanged whenever a system component (pump, hose, rack & pinion, etc.) is replaced.
