Power steering

Steer Right In Chicago Virtually all vehicles come with power steering so many Chicago motorists have never driven a car or truck without it. Power steering assists you when you turn your cars 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 Chicago vehicles have an electric motor that reduces steering effort and helps improve fuel efficiency. The other kind of power steering is hydraulic. This is the kind most older Illinois vehicles, and a lot of newer ones, have. Power steering fluid is pressurized by a pump and is used to assist steering. Of course, Chicago motorists need the right amount of fluid in the system. If itís too low your steering is affected and you could damage your Minivan 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 Triangle Auto Service in Chicago includes removing the contaminated fluid and replacing it with fresh fluid. A word 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 cars components it drives, including the power steering pump, so replace the belt at Triangle Auto Service as advised to avoid undue repairs. Losing your power steering while driving in Chicago can be unsettling Ė just remember that you can still steer, itíll just be harder. Check with your honest Triangle Auto Service tech to see if itís time to service your cars power steering system.
