A power steering system flush occurs when particles, such as small pieces of plastic, metal, and rubber are flushed out of the power steering fluid of your car. The power steering system in your car does not have a filter, so the only way you can remove the particles from the power steering system is to flush the system. A fluid exchange involves a variety of fluids in your car, including automatic transmission, power steering, differential, and brake fluid. Each type of fluid has a unique function and has different change intervals. The process of keeping the oil in your car clean is known as fluid conditioning.
You need these services performed to remove the waste, the wear particles, such as metal, from your car's suspension system. Without properly exposing this debris from your car's system, they will remain in circulation until the system is flushed. If you never flush it, you will clog the system and cause a whole heap of problems you will have to pay a pretty penny to fix.
You could wait to flush your car's systems and risk your steering pump failing. When the steering pump fails, it's hard to turn the wheels of your car and get them to cooperate, especially when you're turning. This issue alone makes your vehicle unsafe. The fluids of your vehicle are there to keep its operation smooth and performing as it should. Without these fluids, your car is a rolling heat factory. Over time, the fluids in your car break down and deteriorate, especially when you're driving in the city, hauling heavy loads, and frequent stopping. These particular fluids help you shift gears without too much hassle.
