Power Steering Fluid Exchange Service In Columbus, OH

Power Steering Fluid Exchange Service In Columbus, OH

The power steering in your car is one of the essential systems for comfortable driving. If our vehicles did not have power steering, we would all have forearms like the cartoon Popeye. The power steering system, like most others in your car, at times, requires some attention. The power steering fluid can get dirty and can need to be replaced. It is not enough to occasionally check your power steering reservoir. At Germain Volkswagen of Columbus, our certified technicians are trained to provide a power steering fluid exchange.


The Process

A power steering fluid exchange is when the dirty fluid is drained out and replaced with new fluid. Often this is necessary due to the rings and seals inside the system getting old and flaking off parts into the fluid. If the power steering is neglected for too long, the dirty fluid could cause other vehicle parts problems. By servicing your power steering fluid on time, you can avoid a more expensive repair in the future. A power steering fluid exchange can save you from a headache down the road.

Potential Power Steering Trouble

The dirty fluid forces the power steering pump in your car to work harder. Eventually, if the dirty fluid is not changed out, a power steering fluid leak could develop, or the pump could wear down due to the added work the dirty fluid forces on it. Adhering to your vehicle's maintenance schedule, as outlined in the owner's manual, will help you avoid costly repairs to your power steering system.

Signs of Power Steering Problems

If your steering wheel becomes difficult to turn for any reason, your power steering should be serviced. Often, the wheel will regularly be difficult to turn in one direction at the beginning. Another sign of needing power steering help is the pump making noise. This is easy to detect due to the loud moaning that your car makes when the pump starts to go out. These signs should be indicators that you should service your power steering. Each vehicle's owner manual will have a maintenance schedule that dictates when the service should be done.
