Between flushing your brakes, radiator, transmission and oil systems, you might ask yourself “Are Power Steering flushes really necessary?”
The point of the power steering system is to evenly and easily disperse power to the wheels based on how we turn the steering wheel. Power steering fluid is constantly in motion while you are driving your vehicle, allowing prompt response times upon turning or slowing down. This hydraulic fluid is, as any component in your Honda, susceptible to damage through corrosion, debris and wear and tear that can be attributed to mileage and time. Unlike transmission fluid or engine oil, there is no filter in the power steering system.
Since there is no filter to keep particles and debris out of the power steering system, Honda does recommend having Factory Certified Technicians perform a Honda Power Steering Flush Service at regular intervals to keep your power steering system fully operational. If you find yourself regularly towing heavy loads or hauling large equipment, talk to your Service Advisor about getting your power steering fluid checked more often.
When you bring your Honda in to Rolling Hills Honda for such a service, you can count on our Certified Technicians to not only flush all the old, dirty power steering fluid, but to also clean any build-up in the reservoir. Once thats completed, you can trust on only the best OEM fluids to be run through the newly chemically flushed power steering fluid.
By keeping your power steering system clean and operating to the highest standards, you can avoid some of the most problematic issues associated with power steering.Common Power Steering Issues:
