You turn the steering wheel and your vehicle goes in the direction you want. It’s so simple, right? Not necessarily. Power steering is a complicated modern technology that requires the orchestration of multiple precise components in order to work smoothly. At the very least, a power steering system as a whole consists of a fluid reservoir, a steering fluid pump, and a rack and pinion assembly. Each of these critical components must operate in unison in order to function well, which demonstrates the importance of the regular flushing and replacement of the hydraulic fluid that runs through this system.

Having your power steering fluid flushed is a fairly quick and straightforward procedure. However, specialized tools are necessary to ensure that the process is performed correctly.
