Power Steering Service and Repair in Katy
The power steering’s job is to reduce the amount of effort you need to apply to turn the wheels. Most power steering systems are powered by a hydraulic pump that’s driven by the drive belt assembly. Power steering fluid is pressurized and moved throughout the system, multiplying the force you apply to the steering wheel, making steering easier.
Power steering fluid also cools, cleans and provides lubrication for the pump and other moving parts of the system. Over time, the fluid looses its effectiveness, allowing premature wear to the components and cause leaks in the pressure hose and lines. Checking and keeping clean fluid in the system will help it perform properly and minimize your long-term repair costs.
Some cars have electrical power steering systems that don’t require any fluid. This system has several benefits: less power from the engine to operate, more precise steering, and power steering is available even if the engine is not running. But keep in mind that regardless of the system you car has, pumps and motors will eventually wear if not properly maintained.
