Steering System Repair
If your vehicle’s steering system is not operating properly, you will be a hazard on the road. Routine maintenance of your vehicle’s steering system is required at specific intervals in accordance to your make and model’s manual, and steering system repairs are needed occasionally.
Power steering fluid should be checked and replaced approximately every 48,000 miles. This will allow your vehicle to maintain proper fluid levels, and is a good time to check for any components that need extra grease or lubrication.
