Power Steering

power-steeringToday’s power steering pumps and racks are manufactured under tight tolerances. Subjected to extreme heat, pressure and friction the power steering fluid begins to oxidize and break down. Contaminated fluid pumped through the system, under its high pressure, will cause abrasive wear in the pump and rack assembly. This leads to pump noise, erratic steering and eventual mechanical failure.

With our Complete Power Steering Fluid Exchange Service a professional strength cleaner will be added to the system which will:

  • Efficiently remove contaminated and accumulated deposits from the internal components
  • Flush out worn-out, contaminated fluid and suspended debris with a specialized tool
  • Belts, hoses and connections with then be inspected and replaced, if necessary
  • Finally, a specially formulated power steering fluid will be pumped into the system

Performing this service on your vehicle will:

  • Extend the life of the power steering system by reducing wear
  • Help prevent annoying leaks by keeping the seals pliable
  • Prevent fluid breakdown through oxidization
  • Alleviate pump squeal
  • Help prevent costly repairs

This service is recommended every 2 years or 50,000km.
