If you are driving an older car, than you may notice that it isn’t as easy as it used to be to make turns. If you think that you are having to use more force to turn the wheel, or that it starts to stick, then that means that you are probably going to need to add or flush your power steering fluid. Like many other parts of your car, your power steering is accomplished by a fluid that helps you drive your car with ease. Over time, the steering fluid may get low, or become dirty and contaminated, which means you have to get rid of the old, and add in the new.
This can be easily done at home, but there is more to it than taking off a cap and adding more fluid. The video below is a great walk through on how to flush your car’s power steering fluid.
If you still feel that you are having problems turning your steering wheel, then you may want to take your car to a mechanic to make sure there aren’t any bigger problems. You can’t drive what you can’t steer. If you are looking for a new car that you can control with ease, then just swing by Freeman Grapevine and I’ll get you a great deal on a new Buick or GMC.
