If you are experiencing difficulty with your power steering, your response becomes sluggish and steering is hard to control. Low fluid levels are often a culprit, but this could indicate a larger problem like a leak. Your power steering is important to the safe operation of your vehicle. Bring your vehicle to us for a recommendation.
Power Steering – warning signs of trouble with your power steering: You are having a hard time turning the wheel, you have un-reliable power assistance, you hear squeaking belts or a loud whine from the pump, you are adding power steering fluid frequently. NEVER hold the steering wheel to the far right or left for more than a few seconds at a time; you are sure to wear out your power steering pump real fast.
Some of your other steering components may be damaged from wear. Ball-joints, steering-gear, steering-knuckle, idler-arm and tie rods included. An annual alignment check at American Tire and Service will reveal bent or damaged steering components.
