Next to keeping your brakes in good service, making sure your steering assembly is in good shape is important to your car's health and your safety.

While steering may seem simple, it's a mechanism involving a bunch of parts further complicated by aids like power-steering fluid.

If you have found that your steering is much harder to turn than normal or if you feel like you're getting an arm workout when you navigate parking lots, your power-steering fluid could be leaking or need replacing.

Look inside your engine bay for the power-steering reservoir. It should be a small cup with a black lid with a dark-yellow fluid inside. Look around the sides of the reservoir and along the hoses for any signs of leaks or cracks.

If your steering wheel is off center that is a sign your alignment is off which you can read about here.


If your power steering is low be careful adding a leak stop thinking it will be a fix all for any drips. Opinions will differ depending on the brand of stop leak, where the leak is coming from and what type of steering system it is being applied to.

Depending on those factors the stop leak could fix any drips, or it could require your entire power-steering system to be replaced. Before you pour anything in, get Car City Wholesale ASE certified technicians expert opinion.
