Service Includes: Inspect all components for wear, leaks and proper operation. A powerful cleaner is then used to suspend and dissolve varnish and gums in the power steering system, flush out old power steering fluid and replace with a specially formulated, high tech BG fluid. The benefit is a quieter-operating, longer lasting power-steering system.
Why: The power steering pump produces high pressure between 800-2000 pounds, with high heat. This leads to fluid breakdown and failure. Symptoms include groaning and whining noises, erratic steering and pump leaks. This service helps prevent wear to the steering gear, hoses and power steering pump.
Grooves are worn into the soft metal of the spool valve housing by hardened seals. Metallic debris from such wear accumulates in the fluid causing premature component failure!
