Power Steering Flush-Power steering fluid provides hydraulic assist for the power steering system. Over time, O-rings, seals and other internal power steering components can deteriorate and contaminate the fluid. A flush will remove all of the old fluid and replace it with clean fluid.
At some point drivers encounter a problem with their power steering system on their vehicle, anything from noise to stiff steering or fluid leaks or hard turning when the vehicle is cold. Normal driving causes your power steering fluid to get damaged from heat, friction and electrochemical degradation.
New power steering fluid starts clean and clear but eventually turns dark with age. Varnish and sludge deposits can build up in your power steering system and affect the ease of turning and responsive handling.
By flushing out your power steering fluid you remove the sludge and varnish deposits. It is also the best way to remove the tiny metal particles that slowly grind away your power steering internal components such as the power steering hoses, pump, rack and pinion and or gear box.
It is recommended that power steering fluid be flushed every 30,000 miles. If your vehicle’s power steering fluid is showing signs of contamination. Do this before it becomes a major expense.
Dirty, neglected power steering fluid can look like used engine oil and can compromise the performance of your steering system, and in some cases, even cause damage.

Power Steering Fluid provides hydraulic assist for the Power Steering System. Over time O-rings, seals and other internal Power Steering components can deteriorate and contaminate the fluid. Normal driving also causes your Power Steering Fluid to get damaged from heat, friction and electrochemical degradation. Left unaddressed this can cause issues with the Power Steering system such as noise, stiff steering, fluid leaks or hard turning when the vehicle is cold. This is caused by the varnish and sludge deposits built up in the system restricting fluid flow. Power Steering Fluid starts out clean and clear but eventually turns dark with age which signals that it is ready for replacement.
By flushing the Power Steering Fluid and replacing it with new clean fluid we remove the sludge and varnish deposits flowing through the system. This is also the best way to remove tiny metal particles that slowly grinds away the internal components in the power steering pump and steering gear box (or rack and pinion, depending on the vehicle). The metal particles and old fluid can also cause premature leaks from the rubber hoses, seals, and gaskets. Power Steering Flushes are typically recommended every 30,000 miles but this can differ depending on the age of the vehicle and type of fluid used. If your Power Steering Fluid is showing signs of contamination it is recommended to have it serviced before it becomes a bigger issue.
