Virtually all vehicles come with power steering so many Statesboro auto owners have never driven a car or truck without it. Power steering assists you when you turn your pickup steering wheel. Without it, it would be very hard to steer.
Now this power assist comes in a couple of forms. In recent years, a lot of Brooklet vehicles have an electric motor that reduces steering effort and helps improve gas mileage.
The other kind of power steering is hydraulic. This is the kind most older GA vehicles, and a lot of newer ones, have. Power steering fluid is pressurized by a pump and is used to assist steering. Of course, Brooklet auto owners need the right amount of fluid in the system. If it’s too low your steering is affected and you could damage your pickup pump.
Also, power steering fluid can become corrosive over time and damage the pump, hoses and connectors; leading to leaks and repairs. Power steering service at D & R Car Care in Statesboro includes removing the contaminated fluid and replacing it with fresh fluid.
A word for Statesboro motorists about power steering pumps: Some are powered by an electric motor. Others are driven by the serpentine belt. A worn serpentine belt stresses all of the pickup components it drives, including the power steering pump, so replace the belt at D & R Car Care as advised to avoid undue repairs.
Losing your power steering while driving in Statesboro can be unsettling – just remember that you can still steer, it’ll just be harder. Check with your courteous D & R Car Care service professional to see if it’s time to service your pickup power steering system.
