Power Assisted Steering, or ‘PAS’ as it is also known, is a mechanism that helps you to steer your car. In most vehicles, the PAS relies on a hydraulic system to aid turning the vehicle's wheels. If you have ever driven a car with no Power Steering you will have most certainly noticed the difference between having PAS and not. Power Steering used to be a luxury in certain vehicles, but nowadays it is almost standard in every type of vehicle.
There are two types of power steering: rack-and-pinion and the recirculating ball. Rack-and-pinion is the most common system. Although not as widespread, the recirculating ball system is still in use, mainly on vans and trucks.
In both systems, two high-pressure hoses connect the steering rack to both sides of the centre seal. One hose directs high pressure hydraulic fluid from the power steering pump to the steering mechanism, while the other allows fluid to flow back to the pump. When the steering wheel is turned left or right, the steering mechanism allows the hydraulic fluid to pass to that side of the rack. That pressure assists the vehicle's steering power by pushing the seal and rack in one direction or the other.
Driving in Scotland
Motorists in Scotland come up against a range of challenges. The tourism and festival hub of Edinburgh experiences the extremes of urban congestion; but drive out into the Highlands and you may find yourself squaring up against one of the herds of long-horned Highland cattle that roam freely in some areas.
