Power Steering Fluid Exchange

Power Steering Fluid Exchange Service

Power Steering Maintenance

Power steering allows drivers to turn the wheel on vehicles with little resistance. Before power steering, the vehicle had to be moving in order to turn the wheels without having to struggle like you would if the vehicle was sitting still.

The power steering system relies on hydraulics nowadays to force the wheels to move in the direction you desire. It is the fluid in this system that produces the pressure to make the wheels turn with little effort.

Signs You Need the Power Steering Fluid Changed

Power steering fluid, like the other oils and fluids in your car, can break down after a while and it will not provide the viscosity to protect the internal parts of the power steering system.

You will first notice the deterioration of the fluid by the change of its color. New power steering fluid has amber or clear appearance, but over time, the color will become increasingly dark as the fluid wears out.

Eventually, the worn out fluid will not provide the lubrication the internal parts need to control the amount of friction heat buildup in the system.

As the friction builds up, the internal parts and seals will usually break down and leaks will develop. The leaks will cause the fluid level to drop, and if it is not addressed right away, severe damage can result which can affect your ability to use your vehicle. You need to bring the vehicle into the Lou Fusz dealership as soon as you notice the power steering fluid reservoir needs constant refilling and you notice puddles of fluid forming on the driveway where you parked your car or pickup truck.
