A properly maintained vehicle is safer and more dependable, lasts longer and makes driving more enjoyable. That’s why your Owner’s Manual contains detailed maintenance schedules outlining operations that should be performed on your vehicle’s components and systems at specific mileage intervals. The power steering fluid works together with the power steering pump to help you the driver to turn the steering wheel and vehicle easier. If you hear a noise coming from the power steering like a moaning or groaning sound while you are turning this means that the power steering fluid is probably low. It is probably time to have the seals and power steering fluid checked. If you haven’t had a power steering flush done within the last few thousands of miles then it definitely time to have that done.

The engine, transmission, brake and radiator flushes are part of the general maintenance schedule a vehicle owner should already be doing. But does the power steering fluid really need to be part of the general maintenance schedule? The experts at Gary’s Automotive Service in Chico, CA says it should. Our owner, David Sherrill, believes that flushing the power steering fluid can help avoid costly repairs later. David says that the fluid can break down and over time can become contaminated with metal and rubber grit or particles that can cause damage to the power steering pump and gears. David suggests a power steering fluid flush every 30,000 to 60,000 miles to ensure that your power steering system functions properly.
A Power Steering Fluid Exchange from Gary’s Automotive Services safely removes varnish and sludge deposits. It is also the best way to remove wear metals that slowly grind away your power steering’s internal components, including the power steering hoses, power steering pump, rack and pinion and/or gear box. Our Power Steering Fluid Exchange thoroughly cleans your vehicle’s steering system and protects it with fresh power steering fluid and conditioners that revitalize the seals and O-rings.

Transmission Flush vs. Change
A flush uses a professional grade machine to completely flush all the transmission fluid from your vehicle and remove some grime and contaminants from the torque converter and cooler lines to prevent them from causing transmission problems. This process involves running a special solution through the lines until they come out completely clean and then fills up the system with new fluid.
A fluid change on the other hand simply drains it using natural gravitational forces. Not all the fluid in the system is drained using this method and it does not flush out contaminants. Most say it only drains between 20%-40% of the total volume. The expert’s at Gary’s in Chico, CA are trained to help change as much of the fluid as possible. However, sometimes you need to really look at a total flush of the system.

Is Acid eating your Cooling System?
Here in Chico California we can not enjoy driving if our Vehicle cooling system fails. Repairs are extremely expensive and many cars lose a lot of value once the cooling system starts to fail.
Fact: Your cars acid levels climb constantly inside the cooling system! Reactions internally cause that to happen and when the acid climbs so does the damage to your parts. Nothing eats your cooling system up more than old highly acidic fluids. Ideal acid levels should be between 9.8 and 10.5. When it gets down to 8.5 or worse it is too acidic for your vehicle and really does need to be flushed and replaced.
