Virtually all vehicles come with power steering so many East Windsor auto owners have never driven a car or truck without it. Power steering assists you when you turn your minivan 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 Bloomfield vehicles have an electric motor that reduces steering effort and helps improve gas mileage.
The other kind of power steering is hydraulic. This is the kind most older CT vehicles, and a lot of newer ones, have. Power steering fluid is pressurized by a pump and is used to assist steering. Of course, Bloomfield drivers need the right amount of fluid in the system. If it’s too low your steering is affected and you could damage your minivan 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 Marselli Precision Automotive in East Windsor includes removing the contaminated fluid and replacing it with fresh fluid.
A word for East Windsor drivers 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 minivan components it drives, including the power steering pump, so replace the belt at Marselli Precision Automotive as advised to avoid undue repairs.
Losing your power steering while driving in East Windsor can be unsettling – just remember that you can still steer, it’ll just be harder. Check with your considerate Marselli Precision Automotive service specialist to see if it’s time to service your minivan power steering system.
