Power Steering Service.
Cars designed for power steering are very hard to steer without it. So it is in your best interest to do everything you can to avoid power steering loss, including changing your power steering fluid on a regular basis.
Without clean power steering fluid, the hydraulic fluid that provides the “power” in power steering, you run the risk of damaging your vehicle’s power steering system. You may have to replace your power-steering pump or power-steering rack, which can range from moderately to extremely expensive.
Why would power-steering fluid go bad? A number of factors can cause the fluid to degrade, including heat, friction and contamination. As a result, deposits can build up in your power steering system and potentially impact your vehicle’s ability to steer properly.
Oilstop recommends you change your power steering fluid once every 30,000 miles. But if your power-steering is making groaning or whining noises or the steering has become erratic, don’t wait. Come on in and Oilstop will evaluate whether your power steering fluid needs replacing. If it does, we’ll take care of it for you by flushing out your car’s old power-steering fluid and replacing it with fresh fluid.
