Typical Signs of Steering Issues
Familiarizing yourself with the indicators of potential steering issues can have a significant impact. Early problem detection can be the decisive factor between minor repairs and critical steering component failures while driving. You should watch for signs of steering issues and not hesitate to bring your vehicle in for inspection when you notice them. Here are some of those signs:
Unusual high-pitched noises when steering and/or when turning your vehicle on, can indicate problems with the power steering system. This could be caused by a number of things, from a failing rack and pinion, worn out tie rod ends, pitman arms, center link, idler arms to a power steering pump belt.
Vibrations in the Steering Wheel
Vibrations or shaking felt in the steering wheel, potentially signal alignment or tire issues. Such vibrations or shaking, especially at higher speeds, can compromise driving comfort and safety, necessitating a prompt inspection to pinpoint the underlying causes.
Leaking Power Steering Fluid
Puddles or drips of power steering fluid under the vehicle are often a sign of a leak in the power steering system. If the problem is caught early on, hoses, bolts and washers, and gaskets can be replaced for a fraction of the cost while reducing potential damage to major components in your vehicle.
Difficult, Loose, or Unresponsive Steering
One of the most obvious issues with a power steering pump is when the steering wheel becomes very hard to turn. A loose or overly sensitive steering wheel that doesn't respond as expected when turning, could also be a sign that your steering system is in need of repair.
Whether We Repair or Replace, We Do So Honestly
Sometimes, we can replace a power steering belt and fix your steering issues or add more fluid to the power steering pump reservoir. Oftentimes, it is not that simple. Regardless, after we inspect your vehicle we will recommend replacing worn out or broken parts and let you know about any other issues we find. You can rely on us to recommend affordable solutions to fix your vehicle's steering system issues.
