At one time or another, most drivers encounter a power steering problem with their car – anything from fluid leaks or noise, to stiff steering or hard turning after first starting the car. Normal driving eventually causes your power steering fluid to suffer from heat, friction and electrochemical degradation. The high pressure created when you hold hard turns is especially damaging.
Your power steering fluid, which starts out clear, eventually turns dark with age. Sludge and varnish deposits build up in your power steering system and prevent easy turning and responsive handling that you expect from your vehicle.
Power Steering Flush includes:
- Road test for power steering operation
- Inspect system for leaks
- Flush power steering lines
- Flush power steering pump
- Flush power steering rack and pinion and/or gear box
- Thoroughly clean all internal parts
- Flush out all contaminated power steering fluid and replace with clean fluid
- Install power steering additive to revitalize seals and o-rings
- Road test vehicle for proper power steering operation
