    Car Power Steering Fluid Leak Repairs in Hamilton

    About power steering fluid leaks:

    Power steering fluid leak

    A power steering fluid leak.

    In your car’s power steering system, the car’s power steering pump pushes power steering fluid from a reservoir to the steering box via a belt and pulley. As you turn the steering wheel, this pressurized power steering fluid is allowed to flow into a piston that gives an additional push to move the steering in the desired direction.

    Power steering fluid levels should be checked routinely. This prevents the fluid from depleting without you knowing, Power steering fluid should also be replaced once every 70,000 km. Leaks in your car’s power steering system can prevent the power steering system from working correctly. This usually results in a stiffer, more difficult to turn steering wheel.

    How does power steering work?

     

    What causes power steering fluid leaks?

    Just like other components in your car, the power steering oil seals will become old and worn over time. This can cause power steering fluid to leak from the seals. Leaks can also be caused by wear/damage to the power steering hoses or pump or from the power steering rack. 

     

    Symptoms of a power steering fluid leak:

    Noisy steering – If your steering wheel is producing noise when it is turned, check the power steering levels in your car.  These noises will be the most noticeable when driving slowly.

    Difficult to turn steering wheel – As your power steering system loses fluid, it will work less effectively. This will make it harder to turn your car’s steering wheel. Your steering wheel may also jerk or move unpredictably when you are driving at slow speeds.

    Visible puddles under vehicle – If you notice a puddle forming under your car, it means that fluid or oil is leaking from your car. This could be power steering fluid, coolant, petrol or oil.
