Servicing Your Power Steering System

Your car has an electronically or mechanically powered belt that drives its power steering pump. This pump pushes steering fluid to the steering gear, which allows for smooth, responsive steering control while you’re driving. Over time, however, this fluid can become contaminated and less efficient.

Signs of a power steering problem include:

  • Heavy or stiff steering wheel
  • Groaning or squealing noises when you turn the wheel
  • Vibrating steering wheel
  • Erratic steering assistance

  • Q. "How do I know if my power steering is starting to fail?"
    3 common signs are that your wheel is requiring more force to turn, whining noise when turning, or your steering shakes when idle. If you are worried about your power steering failing, contact your local Christian Brothers today to have our experienced technicians take a look.
  • Q. "How often do I need to get my power steering fluid replaced?"
    The average recommendation is between 40,000 and 80,000 miles, but it varies depending on your manufacturer's recommendations.
  • Q. "Why do I need to change my power steering fluid?"
    With time, the power steering fluid in your vehicle loses its potency and can become contaminated. Fluid with foreign materials and dirt floating around in it is less efficient, meaning the pump works harder and is worn down faster. Putting new fluid in is much more cost-effective than buying a new pump.
  • Q. "What do I do if my power steering fails while driving?"
    If your power steering fails while driving, it will require quite a bit of force to turn the wheel. Carefully pull to the side of the roadand call a tow truck to safely get your vehicle to an automotive shop.
  • Q. "What is a Digital Vehicle Inspection?"
    With a complimentary Digital Vehicle Inspection (DVI) on every visit, you’ll see firsthand photos of your vehicle from under the hood. We’ll let you know if everything is functioning properly or if there are any areas of concern. You can even approve or deny our service recommendations, all straight from your smartphone, or you can, of course, give us a call and we’ll explain our findings in further detail.
  • Q. "Do you offer a warranty?"
    As part of our Nice difference.® commitment to providing our customers the best auto service experience possible, we also offer a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty on all the work that we do. We offer this warranty at every Christian Brothers Automotive nationwide, and it will be honored at any location, regardless of which branch did the initial work.
