Power Steering Service

Additives and detergents in power-steering fluid and eventually lose their ability to protect system components. Like motor oil and ATF, power-steering fluid degrades between changes due to heat, pressure, and contamination. Internal parts can become coated with sludge and damaged by rubbing metal parts, causing squeals, premature wear, and seal leaks. Unfortunately, the power-steering system is often overlooked and not serviced regularly. If services are skipped or delayed, it becomes difficult to remove old fluid from the entire system and not just the reservoir, which leads to more involved service and potentially costly repairs.

Here at our local service department, we recommend regular power steering fluid changes to maintain the system. Benefits of this service help to:

  • Maintain smooth steering motion
  • Reduce chatter and squeals
  • Condition seals and prevent leaks
  • Remove sludge and debris
  • Prevent premature pump and rack wear

An experienced technician, using a specially-designed fluid, will circulate MOC Power-steering cleaning solution through the system to dissolve and suspend the deposits in the pump, rack, and lines. The old fluid and deposits are then extracted from the entire system, not just the reservoir as is the case with other services. Simultaneously, a high-quality MOC power-steering fluid is added to the system. To complete the service, a MOC Power-Steering Supplement may be added to fortify the new fluid, condition seals, and reduce wear on internal components.

To keep the wheel turning smoothly in your vehicle, come to our professional service department for power steering service. If this is your first time making the drive from Lakewood to our used car lot, take these directions to our front door.
