Steer Right In Medford

power steering service Medford

Virtually all vehicles come with power steering so many Medford motorists have never driven a car or truck without it. Power steering assists you when you turn your Car steering wheel. Without it, it would be very hard to steer.

Now this power assist comes in a couple of forms. In recent years, a lot of Medford vehicles have an electric motor that reduces steering effort and helps improve fuel economy.

The other kind of power steering is hydraulic. This is the kind most older Oregon vehicles, and a lot of newer ones, have. Power steering fluid is pressurized by a pump and is used to assist steering. Of course, Medford drivers need the right amount of fluid in the system. If it’s too low your steering is affected and you could damage your Car pump.

Also, power steering fluid can become corrosive over time and damage the pump, hoses and connectors; leading to leaks and repairs. Power steering service at Medford Automotive in Medford includes removing the contaminated fluid and replacing it with fresh fluid.

A word for Medford car owners about power steering pumps: Some are powered by an electric motor. Others are driven by the serpentine belt. A worn serpentine belt stresses all of the Car components it drives, including the power steering pump, so replace the belt at Medford Automotive as advised to avoid undue repairs.

Losing your power steering while driving in Medford can be unsettling – just remember that you can still steer, it’ll just be harder. Check with your honest Medford Automotive technician to see if it’s time to service your Car power steering system.

In addition to power steering service, at Medford Automotive we offer comprehensive automotive services including Vehicle Inspections, Preventative Maintenance and Scheduled Maintenance.
