17 Apr Steer Right In Jacksonville
Virtually all vehicles come with power steering so many Jacksonville auto owners have never driven a car or truck without it. Power steering assists you when you turn your Japanese Import 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 Jacksonville vehicles have an electric motor that reduces steering effort and helps improve MPG.
The other kind of power steering is hydraulic. This is the kind most older Florida vehicles, and a lot of newer ones, have. Power steering fluid is pressurized by a pump and is used to assist steering. Of course, Jacksonville motorists need the right amount of fluid in the system. If it’s too low your steering is affected and you could damage your Japanese Import 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 JJ’s Custom Import Repair, Inc. in Jacksonville includes removing the contaminated fluid and replacing it with fresh fluid.
A word for Jacksonville auto 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 Japanese Import components it drives, including the power steering pump, so replace the belt at JJ’s Custom Import Repair, Inc. as advised to avoid undue repairs.
Losing your power steering while driving in Jacksonville can be unsettling – just remember that you can still steer, it’ll just be harder. Check with your hones JJ’s Custom Import Repair, Inc. technician to see if it’s time to service your Japanese Import power steering system.
