Power Steering

When was the last time your vehicle’s power steering system was serviced?

The power steering pump produces high pressure between 800 – 2000 pounds, with high heat. This leads to fluid breakdown and failure, resulting in less responsive, noisy steering and ultimately – expensive breakdown. Symptoms include groaning and whining noises, erratic steering and pump leaks.

Solution: A powerful cleaner suspends and dissolves varnish and gums in the power steering system and then all the old fluid is replaced with new high-tech power steering fluid for both conventional sector and rack and pinion. The benefit will be a quieter-operating, longer lasting power-steering system.

Using specialised equipment our technicians will use a powerful cleaner to dissolve the varnish and gums in your vehicles power steering unit.

We then flush the entire unit of all old fluid and contaminants and install new high-tech fluid containing conditioners and anti-wear additives enhancing smoothness of the steering operation. This service will:

  • Alleviate steering squeal caused by sticking valves
  • Correct the jerky feeling on the steering wheel
  • Help prevent fluid leaks
  • Reduce wear
  • Enhance operational life

To avoid costly repairs, we recommend servicing your power steering every 2 years or 30,000 miles.
