Power Steering Fluid Flush
Power steering allows drivers to control the vehicle with more sensitive control using a finely calibrated pressure system. An electronically or mechanically powered belt drives the power steering pump. The pump propels the steering fluid to the steering gear, maintaining smooth and responsive control while driving. Without power steering, the steering wheel is stiff and hard to turn, making vehicle control much more difficult. Taking care of the power steering system is vital for safety and includes regular power steering fluid flush.
Over time, contaminants invade the steering fluid, and it becomes less efficient in providing smooth steering. If your vehicle’s steering wheel is heavy or stiff, vibrates or groans while turning, or if you experience erratic power steering assistance, call Harrell’s Tire & Auto Service for a power steering fluid flush. Our technicians flush the power steering fluid, clean, and replace the fluid to the manufacturer’s specifications to restore functionality.
