Power Steering

inside our shop
A power steering system is designed to utilize power from the engine to assist in the force needed to steer the vehicle. When the engine is running, a multi ribbed belt is used to transfer engine power to a hydraulic fluid pump. This pump pressurizes fluid and then transfers this fluid using power steering hoses that are connected to a power steering box or rack and pinion depending on how the car is designed. When the power steering system has malfunctioned the vehicle will be very difficult to steer. It is advised not to move a vehicle with the power steering system not operating. Any steering component malfunction can cause the vehicle to be uncontrollable. When a malfunction occurs basic trouble shooting is required, we have listed some of the most common problems below:
