Are you concerned that your steering may need adjusting or repair? Problems with the steering system, although still dangerous, tend to give you a lot of warning signs before things go south. It’s important to heed these signs instead of ignoring them. This article will cover a couple of the more significant ones:
Difficulty in turning the wheel - Beware of power steering. Check the fluid reservoir. Fill it up if it’s empty. If the process repeats, inspect the vehicle for any signs of fluid leakage.
Steering wheel vibration - Although this can indicate wheel alignment problems, more often than not, it can also mean a problem with the power steering. A common reason why the steering wheel vibrates is the build-up of contaminants in its system. The way to solve this issue is to do a power steering flush.
The steering wheel is loose - Probably caused by worn steering racks and tie rods.
Screeching noise when turning the steering wheel - the likely cause of this is steering gear problems
Discolored power steering fluid - It probably means that air and water have gotten into the system and prevent the fluid from lubricating the components.
The steering system can go sideways in many ways, but luckily, with quality technician check-ups, you can avoid every single one of them and ensure your car’s top shape for the next adventure!
