Steer Right In Carbondale

power steering service Carbondale

Virtually all vehicles come with power steering so many Carbondale auto owners have never driven a car or truck without it. Power steering assists you when you turn your Sedan steering wheel. Without it, it would be very hard to steer.

Now this power assist comes in a couple of forms. In recent years, a lot of Carbondale vehicles have an electric motor that reduces steering effort and helps improve MPG.

The other kind of power steering is hydraulic. This is the kind most older Illinois vehicles, and a lot of newer ones, have. Power steering fluid is pressurized by a pump and is used to assist steering. Of course, Carbondale car owners need the right amount of fluid in the system. If it’s too low your steering is affected and you could damage your Sedan pump.

Also, power steering fluid can become corrosive over time and damage the pump, hoses and connectors; leading to leaks and repairs. Power steering service at The Auto Shop in Carbondale includes removing the contaminated fluid and replacing it with fresh fluid.

A word for Carbondale drivers about power steering pumps: Some are powered by an electric motor. Others are driven by the serpentine belt. A worn serpentine belt stresses all of the Sedan components it drives, including the power steering pump, so replace the belt at The Auto Shop as advised to avoid undue repairs.

Losing your power steering while driving in Carbondale can be unsettling – just remember that you can still steer, it’ll just be harder. Check with your friendly, polite, & honest The Auto Shop service specialist to see if it’s time to service your Sedan power steering system.

In addition to power steering service, at The Auto Shop we offer comprehensive automotive services including brakes, preventative maintenance and fuel & induction cleaning service.
