Power Steering Fluid Flush
Most people at one time or another have encountered a power steering problem with either a power steering pump, hoses, gear box or rack and pinion. Failures could be anything from noise, leaks, or stiffness when first starting the vehicle. Power steering fluid is designed for power steering systems, and different manufacturers sometimes require different fluids. Power steering fluid undergoes extremely high temperatures due to high pressure when held in hard turns. Over time this can cause deposits of sludge and varnish to clog the power steering pump and rack and pinion. The sludge and varnish deposits can cause stiffness, leaks or complete system failures.
A power steering fluid flush safely removes varnish and sludge deposits and cleans all internal power steering components, including the power steering hoses, power steering pump, rack and pinion and/or gear box. This service is also the best way to remove wear metals that are slowly grinding away on your power steering internal components. Your vehicle’s power steering is thoroughly cleaned and protected with fresh power steering fluid and conditioners that revitalize the seals and O-rings in your power steering system.
If your vehicle’s power steering system is showing any signs of contaminated power steering fluid, noise, stiffness, rough or hard turning, a power steering fluid flush is the first thing you should try before it becomes necessary to perform major repair work or even the need for replacement of expensive power steering components.
Power Steering Fluid Flush includes:
- Road test for power steering operation
- Inspect system for leaks
- Flush power steering components (pump, hoses, rack and pinion) to remove all contaminated fluid
- Fill system with new power steering fluid, and conditioner to help revitalize seals and O-rings
