What Is a Power Steering Flush and Do I Need One?
Having your power steering fluid flushed is the process of draining your power steering systems hydraulic fluid and replacing it with a fresh fill-up to properly amplify the power from your steering wheel motions to your vehicle’s steering components. As you use your vehicle over a period of time, its power steering components such as seals and o-rings will wear out, allowing small pieces of dirt, dust, or other contaminants to find their way into the system. Once this occurs, your vehicle’s power steering pump will have to work harder to do its job, further wearing down all of its components.
When Do I Need a Power Steering Fluid Flush?
Your vehicle’s service manual should have your power steering fluid change schedule listed, so you should always check there first. If you have any doubts, feel free to give us a call to talk to one of our Service Experts for advice!
