How Do Power Steering Systems Work?
Power assisted steering comes as a hydraulic system attached to your vehicle's steering rack. Your input through the steering wheel combined with a pulley driven power steering pump assists in the movement of the steering rack via hydraulic pressure.
Power steering pumps naturally rely on having enough fluid to function, so it is critical the power steering fluid level is always maintained. Once a vehicle's power steering fluid falls below the owner's manual recommendation, these hydraulic systems wear and are open to corrosion and noise. With the power steering fluid reservoir easily visible within your engine bay, topping up with the recommended fluid is easy vehicle maintenance that you can do yourself.
Losing power steering fluid can also come about from worn o rings or cracked power steering hoses, so it always pays to note any leakage or drop in fluid levels.
Choosing The Right Power Steering Fluid, Whether It Is Synthetic Power Steering Fluid, ATF Or Hydraulic Fluid
In the past, it was common for an original equipment manufacturer to use a generic power steering fluid for all applications, but as technology and requirements have changed so have the formulations and standards that are now necessary. There is also the consensus that automatic transmission fluid can be, and are, used for power steering fluid. This is also not entirely correct as although they are both hydraulic fluid, they may share varying detergent and friction modifier properties, and using ATF in your power steering pump and rack can damage the seals and valving in those components. Before changing the power steering fluid, consult your vehicle handbook or the manufacturer specifications to ensure you are choosing the right power steering fluid for your requirements.
