Power steering is provided on almost all cars via a hydraulic pump which assists the driver in turning the steering wheel with manageable effort. Like all fluids in your vehicle, power steering fluid wears out over time and must be replaced in order to ensure proper vehicle control and the longevity of steering components.

We perform a visual and sometimes audible inspection on the power steering system. If needed, we flush the old fluid and refill the system with new manufacturer approved fluid. We are looking for dark, murky, burnt smelling steering fluid similar to what we look for in transmission fluid (since they are both hydraulic fluids).
When you are in for your regularly scheduled maintenance we will take a look at all of your vital fluids, including your power steering fluid, but if you notice any of the symptoms above it is worth scheduling a quick visit to have us take a look. Just give us a call or email us to set up something right away.
If your vehicle is ready for maintenance or have any further questions please be in touch via phone or email. You can find all of our contact information and location right here and at the top of each page on this site. You will be greeted by one of the handsome fellas below, who are happy to take your questions any time of day to make you feel confident that you are making sound decisions regarding your vehicle’s health.
