Steer Right In Detroit
Posted in Steering on December 12, 2014
Virtually all vehicles come with power steering so many Livonia auto owners have never driven a car or truck without it. Power steering assists you when you turn your SUV 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 Detroit vehicles have an electric motor that reduces steering effort and helps improve MPG.
The other kind of power steering is hydraulic. This is the kind most older Michigan vehicles, and a lot of newer ones, have. Power steering fluid is pressurized by a pump and is used to assist steering. Of course, Detroit 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 SUV 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 All Night Auto Repair in Livonia includes removing the contaminated fluid and replacing it with fresh fluid.
A word for Livonia auto owners 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 SUV components it drives, including the power steering pump, so replace the belt at All Night Auto Repair as advised to avoid undue repairs.
Losing your power steering while driving in Livonia can be unsettling – just remember that you can still steer, it’ll just be harder. Check with your friendly All Night Auto Repair service professional to see if it’s time to service your SUV power steering system.
In addition to power steering service, at All Night Auto Repair we offer comprehensive automotive services including wheel alignment, tire rotation and coolant flush.
