Today, most vehicles come with power steering, also known as power-assisted steering. This is a system that allows the driver to easily turn the wheels of the vehicle using hydraulic and/or electrical power.
When a power steering system starts failing, you’ll sense a stiff steering wheel or a whining noise. This makes your vehicle very difficult to control. USA Automotive can repair power steering for residents in Knightdale, NC.
Before your power steering comes to a breaking point, you’ll be able to pinpoint a few signs something isn’t working right. If you notice any of the following, bring your car into USA Automotive for a diagnostic so we can fix or replace any necessary parts.
#1 Stiff Steering Wheel
Given that power steering works by making it easy for you to turn your steering wheel, a stiff steering wheel is a warning sign and could mean failures in the power steering pump.
#2 Whining noise coming from the steering wheel
Whining or squealing noises coming from your car are a definitive sign something isn’t working right. It could mean there’s some sort of fluid leak or you’re running low on power steering fluid.
#3 Slow response when making turns
If your steering has become slow-moving or less responsive when turning, it can be a sign that your power steering pump is failing and needs to be fixed or replaced.
