Your Atlanta Car Needs Its Power Steering Fluid Changed

Have you started to notice recently that it isn’t as easy as it used to be to turn that steering wheel? Your issue may be found in old, dirty steering fluid. In fact, your Atlanta Car dealer, Southtowne says, if you notice that you are having to use more force to turn the wheel, or that it starts to stick, then that means that you probably need to add, or flush your power steering fluid.  Like many other parts of your car, your power steering works in tandem with a fluid that assists your power steering mechanism.  Over time, the steering fluid may get low, or become dirty and contaminated, which means you have to get rid of the old, and add in the new. Lot’s of time, you forget to check your fluids and consequently, they get low or compromised with grime and dirt. It’s probably time to do a once over on all of your fluids, specifically your power steering fluid, as this is usually the last fluid people seem to check.

This can be easily done at home, but there is more to it than taking off a cap and adding more fluid.  The video below is a great walk through on how to flush your car’s power steering fluid.

If you are noticing that you are still having problems turning your steering wheel, then you may want to take your car to a mechanic to make sure there aren’t any bigger problems.  Or better yet, why not just hop into your Atlanta car and come into your Atlanta Buick GMC, Cadillac, Chevrolet Dealer, the Southtowne General Motors Superstore. We’ll fix you up and get you back on the road in a flash.
