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.
An iconic brand - what can be said about BMW that hasn’t already been said? Renowned for their handling prowess and performance, BMW make it a point of pride to build beautiful cars. They even used to go by the tagline “The Ultimate Driving Machine” - no need to be humble when you’re BMW, after all.
The 3 and 5 series of BMWs are the foundation of their ranges, and widely thought to be the best cars that they make, full stop. The M5 has even held the position of best sporting saloon car in the world for the last 25 years.
On the more adventurous side of things, BMW have made some more niche outputs, such as the 5 series GT and the X6 more recently. Always on the cutting edge, BMW aren’t content to rest on their laurels. With no weak vehicles in their lineup, you know what to expect when you have a BMW in your garage.
How can you save money (and the environment) while you drive?
As every garage owner will tell you, there are some tried and tested ways to cut down on your petrol costs (and consumption) while you’re out and about in Trimdon Station or beyond. One is to shut your windows. If you can hear that wind noise in your car it’s costing you more to drive. This is because the car becomes less aerodynamic and has to work harder to motor along. Removing a roof rack will improve your fuel efficiency for the same reason. Another useful tip is to combine short trips into one; each time you drive after your car has been parked for a while the engine will be cold and need to use a lot more fuel for the first 5 miles or so. If you do one trip from school drop-off to supermarket to office you’ll use far less fuel than if you do all those trips individually.
