Want to learn more about Power Steering Fluid changes?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does the Power Steering Fluid do?

The power steering system is usually driven by an hydraulic system (some newer cars have electric power steering). This hydraulic system is powered by the power steering fluid which allows for smooth steering wheel motion and makes turning the wheel lighter.

How do you know there is something wrong with the Power Steering Fluid?

  • When the car's steering is much heavier than normal.
  • When the fluid has discoloured (normally taking on a dark hue).
  • When there is a grinding noise present when turning the wheel.

When should you consider a Power Steering Fluid replacement?

As the system comprises of many moving parts like valves, pistons and the power steering pump the fluid can be affected by the wear of these components. Metal particles mix with the fluid which affects the system's sealing leading to leaks. An increasingly inadequate level of fluid will lead to heavier steering and an unsmooth power steering motion. Equally, it can lead to parts wearing out quicker, which in turn can lead to expensive repairs.

Should you experience problems with the power steering, then it is advisable to have the power steering system and fluid inspected and, if necessary, have the power steering fluid replaced. Seeing that the power steering fluid is especially prone to deterioration over time it should always be replaced as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

What happens during a Power Steering Fluid replacement?

  • Mechanic will inspect the power steering system and power steering fluid.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the power steering fluid.
  • Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will inspect the power steering system again for any leaks and test drive the car.

How much does a Power Steering Fluid replacement cost?

The cost of replacing the differential fluid depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having your differential fluid replaced by ClickMechanic, by selecting your car at the top of this page!
