Steer Right In Atlanta

power steering service Atlanta

Virtually all vehicles come with power steering so many Dawsonville auto owners have never driven a car or truck without it. Power steering assists you when you turn your SUV steering wheel. Without it, it would be very hard to steer.

Now this power assist comes in a couple of forms. In recent years, a lot of Atlanta vehicles have an electric motor that reduces steering effort and helps improve MPG.

The other kind of power steering is hydraulic. This is the kind most older Georgia vehicles, and a lot of newer ones, have. Power steering fluid is pressurized by a pump and is used to assist steering. Of course, Atlanta motorists need the right amount of fluid in the system. If it’s too low your steering is affected and you could damage your SUV pump.

Also, power steering fluid can become corrosive over time and damage the pump, hoses and connectors; leading to leaks and repairs. Power steering service at Tower Auto Repair in Dawsonville includes removing the contaminated fluid and replacing it with fresh fluid.

A word for Dawsonville motorists about power steering pumps: Some are powered by an electric motor. Others are driven by the serpentine belt. A worn serpentine belt stresses all of the SUV components it drives, including the power steering pump, so replace the belt at Tower Auto Repair as advised to avoid undue repairs.

Losing your power steering while driving in Dawsonville can be unsettling – just remember that you can still steer, it’ll just be harder. Check with your friendly Tower Auto Repair service advisor to see if it’s time to service your SUV power steering system.

In addition to power steering service, at Tower Auto Repair we offer comprehensive automotive services including maintenance, flush services and headlight lens polishing.
