    Power Steering Fluid Flush Hamilton

    What does power steering fluid do?

    Power steering fluid helps your vehicle to turn easily by transmitting hydraulic energy around your power steering system. It is a red or pink fluid that resides in your vehicle’s power steering reservoir.

    Power steering fluid flows through your vehicle’s steering system. It is pressurised by the power steering pump and presses on either side of a piston mounted to your car’s steering rack. This allows for easier turning of the vehicles front wheels.

    Causes/symptoms of power steering fluid problems:

    Contaminated/old fluid

    As parts of the power steering system wear, the power steering fluid can pick up small metal particles. This can cause parts to wear and seals to become loose. In this case, you will need to get the leak repaired. Symptoms of contaminated fluid include:

    • Power steering fluid appearing a brown, dark colour.
    • Power steering fluid hasn’t been changed in over two years.
    • Reduced power steering effectiveness
    • Whining noises from your power steering pump

    Power steering fluid leaks

    A leak can cause power steering fluid to leave your vehicle, reducing the effectiveness of your power steering system. Leaks can occur in the hoses, seals and power steering pump. Symptoms of a power steering leak include:

    • Red/brown fluid appearing under your vehicle.
    • Reduced power steering effectiveness.
    • Groaning/creaking noise when turning.

    Damaged power steering pump and/or hoses

    The power steering pump and hoses send the fluid out to the rest of the power steering system. If either of the components fail, you may notice the following symptoms:

    • Whining noise when turning (also sometimes caused by a failing drive belt).
    • Leaks from underneath the vehicle.
    • Difficulty turning.
