The Importance of Power Steering Fluid

The majority of modern vehicles today use a power steering system called the power rack and pinion system. One of the most important aspects of this system is the hydraulic fluid that is used to transfer the power in your power steering system. Fortunately, the power steering fluid that is used is one of the least expensive portions of your power steering system as a whole and the recommended maintenance schedule should absolutely be followed. Ensuring that your power steering fluid is changed regularly can prevent you from having to replace a much more expensive portion of this system.

As the power steering system is used, the O-rings that seal various portions of the system will break down and cause small particles to contaminate the fluid. When the small particles of the O-rings are flowing through your power steering pump, it has to work considerably harder and may cause it to break down and fail. Don't let this happen to you in the middle of traffic. Take your vehicle down to Port City Chrysler Dodge and let our team of experts make sure your car is serviced properly.
