What can go wrong with power steering?
Power steering fluid is a hydraulic fluid used in the steering system of the vehicle. The fluid runs through the power steering pump and hoses, providing power to the system and acting as a lubricant and a sealant to prevent corrosion and leaks. If a power steering system is leaking and runs low on fluid, there will be a noticeable difference when you try to turn the steering wheel. The wheel may be more difficult to turn and there may be a groaning noise. Spots of fluid collecting underneath the car can also be a sign of a leak. Due to the fact that the hoses moving the fluid are susceptible to developing leaks, drivers are encouraged to have them inspected by an the garage during every annual service.
