Common Warning Signs That Your Power Steering Needs Repair or Replacement
Watching for the following warning signs will help you spot problems with your power steering and suspension system. If you notice any of the following power steering problems, bring your vehicle into a repair shop immediately.

Power Steering Flush
Over time and miles driven, your power steering fluid can build up small amounts of wear products. These products are bits of metal, rubber and plastic from the inside of the power steering system and naturally wear. Although, as these particles move around the power steering fluid, they accelerate the wear component seals in the system. Since power steering systems do not have a filter, the only way to get rid of these particles is to remove the old power steering fluid out of the vehicle and replace it with new fluid. This removal and replacement of fluid is known as a flush.
A honest mechanic will recommend power steering flushes at regular factory recommended intervals, or when your fluid has become black, brown or contaminated. However, if your vehicle sees a lot of wear and tear from towing or hauling, you might need to get your fluid replaced sooner than the regular intervals.
