Power Steering Service at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Viera in Melbourne

Many Melbourne drivers have been hearing about technological advances in power steering, specifically electric power steering. Some very high-end cars have been featuring electric power steering. Power steering fluid has the necessary hydraulic properties and the ability to lubricate the internal parts. The power steering fluid also protects vehicle components from rust and corrosion.

Melbourne car owners should be aware that vehicle manufacturers recommend that the fluid be replaced on schedule. At Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Viera, the old fluid is drained and the system cleaned thoroughly. Fresh fluid is then installed.

Unfortunately, many Melbourne drivers don't realize how important it is to service their power steering, and some may not even know that it's necessary in the first place. A neglected power steering system can develop leaks that will shorten the life of the pump.

Melbourne drivers should be aware of warnings that indicate possible power steering problems: the need to constantly add power steering fluid, a loud whining from the pump, erratic power assist or high steering effort. If you're experiencing any of these problems, have your power steering checked out at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Viera in Melbourne.

In addition to the pump and hydraulic system, there are mechanical parts in the steering system. The rods, arms, joints and knuckles that actually turn the wheels can become worn or damaged. A standard alignment service at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Viera includes an inspection of steering components.

See if you notice any of these: play in the steering wheel, the steering wheel is off center, or there's a noise coming from your front wheels, especially when turning.  If so, have your friendly and knowledgeable Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Viera service advisor do an inspection so the problem can be corrected. Waiting too long could cause uneven tire wear and may even lead to steering failure.
