When to service power steering.
Many drivers have been hearing about technological advances in power assist systems, specifically electric power steering. Some very high-end cars have been featuring electric power steering. Power steering fluid has the necessary hydraulic properties and the ability to lubricate the internal parts. The fluid also protects vehicle components from rust and corrosion.
Car owners should be aware that vehicle manufacturers recommend that the fluid be replaced on schedule. At J.C. Motors, the old fluid is drained and the system cleaned thoroughly. Fresh fluid is then installed.
Unfortunately, many drivers don’t realize how important it is to service their power steering, and some may not even know that it’s necessary in the first place. A neglected system can develop leaks that will shorten the life of the pump. Watch the video on our services page.
Drivers should be aware of possible problems: the need to constantly add power steering fluid, a loud whining from the pump, erratic power assist. If you’re experiencing any of these problems, have your system checked out at J.C. Motors in Tualatin.
What else to service
In addition to the pump and hydraulic system, there are mechanical parts in the steering system. The rods, arms, joints and knuckles that actually turn the wheels can become worn or damaged. A standard alignment service at J.C. Motors includes an inspection of steering components.
See if you notice any of these: play in the steering wheel, the steering wheel is off center, or there’s a noise coming from your front wheels, especially when turning. If so, have your J.C. Motor’s service adviser (always one of the owners) schedule an inspection so the problem can be corrected. Waiting too long usually results in increased parts and labor charges to fix things or worse, steering failure.
