Vehicle Maintenance

Power Steering Fluid Flush

No Appointment Required

Power steering fluid is an essential lubricant that must be maintained and serviced regularly. Over time, the additives in power steering fluid deteriorate, resulting in stiffness, leaks, and potential system failure. To prevent these issues and ensure the optimal functioning of your vehicle’s power steering system, it is essential to consider a power steering fluid flush.

The Importance of Power Steering Fluid Maintenance

The power steering system allows the driver to maneuver the vehicle with minimal effort. It uses hydraulic pressure to assist in turning the wheels, making steering easier and more comfortable.

To ensure the smooth and efficient operation of the power steering system, it is essential to maintain the power steering fluid.

Power Steering Fluid Flush Process

When you bring your vehicle to EconoLube for a power steering fluid flush, our skilled technicians will follow a systematic process to ensure the best results.

  1. Evaluation: The first step is to check the condition of the power steering fluid in your vehicle. Our technicians will assess its quality and determine if it needs to be replaced.
  2. Cleaning: If the power steering fluid is worn out or contaminated, the technician will run a specialized cleaner through the power steering system. This cleaner effectively removes sludge and varnish buildup, restoring optimal performance.
  3. Flushing: The old power steering fluid is flushed out once the cleaning process is complete. This ensures that any remaining impurities are removed from the system, leaving a clean and fresh environment for the new fluid.
  4. Refilling: Finally, the system is filled with fresh power steering fluid. Our technicians use high-quality fluids that meet or exceed manufacturer specifications to ensure the longevity and performance of your power steering system.

Recommended Service Intervals

Following the recommended service intervals is essential to maintain a healthy power steering system. If your vehicle’s owner’s manual provides specific guidance, it is advisable to adhere to those recommendations. However, manufacturers suggest a power steering fluid flush once every 80,000-100,000 kilometres if no particular interval is mentioned.

Additionally, scheduling a power steering fluid flush simultaneously with an engine coolant flush is wise. This allows for synchronized maintenance and maximizes the efficiency of both systems.

Benefits of Power Steering Fluid Flush

Regular power steering fluid flushes offer several benefits to your vehicle and driving experience:

  1. Improved Steering and Control: A clean and properly functioning power steering system ensures effortless steering, allowing for better control and maneuverability.
  2. Prevention of Costly Repairs: Regular maintenance, including power steering fluid flushes, helps prevent major system failures, which can be expensive to repair. By conducting this routine service, you can catch potential issues early on and avoid costly repairs.
  3. Prolonged Component Life: By maintaining a clean and fresh power steering fluid, you extend the lifespan of various components within the power steering system. This saves you money and ensures a smooth and reliable driving experience.
  4. Enhanced Safety: Properly functioning power steering is vital, especially during emergency maneuvers. Regular maintenance, including power steering fluid flushes, helps ensure optimal performance when needed.

Conclusion

Maintaining and servicing your power steering fluid through regular flushes is essential to keep your power steering system operating optimally. EconoLube technicians are trained to perform power running fluid flushes efficiently and effectively to ensure the longevity and performance of your power steering system.

Following manufacturer recommendations and scheduling regular flushes, you can enjoy improved steering, prolonged component life, prevented costly repairs, and enhanced driving safety.

My wife and I have been bringing our vehicle here for oil changes, we recently brought it in for a brake service. The mechanics were knowledgeable and the staff were friendly. Shuttle service was efficient and well communicated with text notifications. The owner was also running the front of the mechanic shop as it is a family run business. We had a great conversation and he was very friendly. Would recommend their services - support local!

My thanks to Kurt at the 200 183 highway 16a location in spruce grove. I discovered a leaking oil filter that was in stalled by my chev dealership. I was heading out hunting at the time but apparently that dealership didn’t have the 5 min to help me out. I pulled into the the econolube, explained the situation and “bam” Done at very reasonable price. Not to mention the pleasant attitude and willingness to help. Thanks again Kurt. Sorry if the spelling of your name is incorrect.

My car needed some repairs, and based on my past excellent experiences with Econolube for oil changes and tire service, I booked it in with them for mechanical service this time. I've had 2 appointments over the last 2 weeks to get everything fixed, and they've been fantastic to deal with. Booking the appointments has been super easy, communication with Reuben before and during the service has been great, and pricing is incredibly reasonable. They do not try to upsell on things that don't actually need to be done, and they were willing to work with me on a timeline to get everything fixed, including swapping over winter tires today. They even offered a shuttle service to get me back home after dropping my vehicle off. Thank you Paul, Reuben, and Vanessa for an excellent experience! I will definitely be back for any future mechanic needs.

By far the nicest most helpful staff out there. Owner was on the floor getting in just as well as everyone else, highly recommend this family run business. Edit, on my 3rd different vehicle and countless time of coming to these guys and I stand behind my previous statement. I’d review these guys and give top ratings every single time If google would let me. Cannot recommend enough, use local it is infinitely better
