Why you should flush out your Power Steering Fluid
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 effect the easy turning and responsive handling you expect from your vehicle.
Our power steering fluid flush safely removes varnish and sludge deposits. It is also the best way to remove wear metals that slowly grind away your power steerings internal components, including the power steering hoses, pump, rack and pinion and/or gearbox. Our power steering fluid flush thoroughly cleans your vehicle’s steering system and protects it with fresh power steering fluid and conditioners that revitalize the seals and o-rings.
It is recommended that the power steering system is flushed every 30,000 miles. If your vehicle’s power steering is showing signs of contaminated fluid, try this service before major and expensive repair work becomes necessary.
