Power steering flush Rochester, MN

How often should you flush your power steering fluid? Many people think power steering fluid should only be replaced when it is dirty or causing a problem. However, at that point, with dirty fluid, it may have already caused damage to the internal steering components. Maintenance is all about taking care of things to keep them doing their job well before they break or harm other areas.  Some manufactures recommend the power steering flush service every 2 years or 75,000-100,000 miles. However, as part of a maintenance program in Rochester, MN and to keep the BG warranty activated, power steering fluid should be replaced every 30,000 miles.

The steering system requires regular maintenance due to the seals, o-rings, and other components that wear out. As they age, they may contaminate the power steering fluid which can cause the power steering pump to work harder due to the dirty fluid. This could lead to premature failure and replacement of the power steering pump.

Perhaps you prefer not to perform maintenance fluid services on your vehicle and you wait for symptoms to arise that indicate a problem. In this case you will want to be very in-tune to any problems when they start to arise as your steering is an important safety system. Listen for noises when your vehicle starts, noise when turning and pay attention to any alteration in your steering wheel – whether it’s slow or stiff to turn.

No matter if you have a maintenance or repair mentality when it comes to servicing your vehicle, we can service your power steering system with the best fluids and parts.  Call Babcock Auto Care today 507-226-8330
