Modern power steering systems operate at extremely high temperatures and pressures - over 1,000 PSI! These systems have very low fluid capacity, and no filtration system. Under these conditions, power steering fluid rapidly breaks down and gets contaminated with oxidation byproducts, debris, and moisture. Symptoms such as groaning, whining, and problems with your steering soon follow.
At ExperTec Automotive in Costa Mesa, we use a powerful cleaner to dissolve and remove deposits and particulates. The old fluid and contaminants are then flushed from the system with advanced specialized equipment, and the proper new high performance fluid for your vehicle is added to the clean power steering system. If you are experiencing any problems with your power steering, call or visit us today to get a professional opinion.
