Power Steering System Fluid Exchange Service Details From Titus-Will Ford
Thanks to the power steering system in your Ford, you don't end up fatigued from turning thousands of pounds worth of vehicle using just the strength in your hands and forearms. This system relies on fluid to lubricate and protect moving parts, allowing for efficient operation but it doesn't last forever. At Titus-Will Ford, we're the Puget Sound region's best choice when it's time for a power steering fluid exchange service.
What are the Benefits of Ford Power Steering Fluid Exchange Service?
The power steering fluid pump pressurizes the power steering fluid, providing hydraulic power that makes for easy steering. At recommended intervals, you should have a factory trained technician flush out and replace your power steering fluid with fresh fluid. This is an inexpensive way to protect the components of the power steering system. If you drive with contaminated power steering fluid for too long, you can do damage to the system, including ruining the pump, which can be costly to repair.
When Should I Have My Power Steering Fluid Replaced?
For most vehicles, 30,000 miles is a reasonable interval for power steering fluid exchange service. Of course, your individual driving frequency and habits may mean that you'll need service sooner than that. Don't ignore warning signs such as noises while you steer, squeals, sluggish response or fluid leakage. In addition, if a certified technician recommends power steering fluid exchange service, you should have it performed as soon as possible.
