How to Check Power Steering Fluid – Checking Power Steering Fluid

Though power steering is not absolutely necessary we’d rather have it than not. Anyone who drives often will surely agree. If your power steering should fail, it could prove to be a dangerous situation. One of the causes for a failure could be a leak of the power steering fluid. If your car was manufactured and designed to operate with power steering, it would be difficult to operate and steer without it. If it fails, you might experience a loss of control in your steering, which can cause an accident.

It is recommended that you only check your power steering fluid level when the car engine is cold. Depending on your car, there may be markings that allow you to check the level when the engine is either hot or cold. Check to see if you have this option, otherwise it is advisable to simply add the fluid while the engine is cold.

How to Flush Power Steering Fluid

Flushing power steering fluid refers to the process of circulating the fluid in an automobile’s steering system in order to assure proper operation. At slow speeds, power steering allows you to easily turn the big, heavy wheels on your car — as long as you have enough steering fluid. The procedure is not difficult, and with a little knowledge, even someone with a minimal amount of experience in mechanics can perform this task on his or her own.

Your power steering system is actually remarkable at staying clean. That said, over time natural wear and tear will cause bits of rubber, plastic, and dirt to enter the fluid, and this can cause problems to the entire system if the fluid is not flushed. Each car has it’s own suggested interval after which you should change the fluid, so look up your model’s time frame.
