Power Steering Flush
Power steering fluid is the hydraulic fluid (oil) that transmits the power from your power steering pump to the steering rack making it easier for you to turn the steering wheel and point the car in the direction you want to go.
Flushing is the process of circulating new power steering oil through the entire system to remove old power steering fluid along with any dirt, corrosive contaminants and rust.
As steering components system wear, metal and rubber particles will contaminate the fluid, which will cause components such as power steering racks, power steering pump and hoses to fail or leak prematurely .
Flushing the power steering system and replace the contaminated fluid with new, fresh fluid will extend the life of your steering components, prevent leaks due to damaged seals, untimely breakdowns, expensive repairs, and prevent other drive-ability problems.
Typically the condition of the power steering oil should be inspected at every oil change and we recommend flushing your car’s power steering system every 30,000 to 60,000 miles depending on driving conditions.
Contaminate power steering fluid is a brown or black color. Remember car manufactures only have to get the vehicle through the warranty period, after that it’s on you to pay for any repairs. Flushing the power steering fluid it is the easiest way to save on expensive repairs later.
A portion of your car’s old power steering fluid is removed and a cleaner is added to the system. The power steering is then operated and the cleaner will remove and suspend contaminants in the power steering oil. Then using your car manufactures power steering fluid, fresh fluid is fed through the system as the old fluid and particles are removed.
