Frequently asked questions about power steering fluid reservoir replacement & repairs
Read our answers to questions about power steering fluid reservoir replacement costs, symptoms and more.
What does a Power Steering Fluid Reservoir do?
The power steering system assists in making the steering wheel motion of a car lighter. Most power steering systems use hydraulics to make the steering lighter (although newer cars are increasingly fitted with electromechanical power steering).
The hydraulic system is powered by hydraulic fluid which is kept in a reservoir in the engine bay. As you turn the wheel the hydraulic system is activated, the power steering pump pushes hydraulic fluid through the system applying pressure on the gearset (usually a rack and pinion assembly) which in turn moves the wheels.
How do you know there is something wrong with the Power Steering Fluid Reservoir?
- When power steering fluid is leaking from the system (transparent patches of fluid underneath the car).
- The steering wheel is heavier to turn than normal.
- When there is a squeaking noise when turning the wheel.
When should you consider a Power Steering Fluid Reservoir replacement?
Over time, the power steering system's components might leak due to worn seals or damage, it can be that the fluid reservoir has started to leak. If the power steering fluid level drops below a certain point, the system will lose its ability to assist in making the steering lighter. It is therefore important to address issues with the system timely and professionally to ensure an optimal steering experience.
Should you experience problems with the power steering then it is advisable to have the system inspected and, if necessary, have the power steering fluid reservoir replaced. Always service the power steering system as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.
