Power Steering Flush and Car Maintenance in Yorktown Heights NY

This is one of the most over-looked services, which could lead to costly repairs. This service is often over often over-looked because the technicians tend to treat this as a “check it out” item instead of a “possible service” item.

How does this break down? Power Steering systems generate 800 to 2000 psi of pressure. This pressure develops extreme heat when turning the steering wheel while standing still or maneuvering at low speed (for example when maneuvering in and out of parking spaces). Power steering fluid has to provide lubrication for all moving parts. It also conditions seals which are used under extreme pressure and temperature. With the extreme conditions power steering fluid has to work, such as temperature and pressure, failure is inevitable.
