Steer Right in North Chesterfield

Posted July 12, 2020 8:30 AM

Virtually all vehicles come with power steering, so many North Chesterfield drivers have never driven a car or truck without it. Power steering assists you when you turn your vehicle 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 vehicles have an electric motor that reduces steering effort and helps improve performance and handling.

The other kind of power steering is hydraulic. This is the kind most older VA vehicles — and a lot of newer ones — have. Power steering fluid is pressurized by a pump and is used to assist steering. Of course, vehicles need the right amount of fluid in the system. If it's too low, your steering is affected and you could damage your vehicle 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 804 Auto Repair in North Chesterfield includes removing the contaminated fluid and replacing it with fresh fluid.

A word for North Chesterfield drivers 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 vehicle components it drives, including the power steering pump, so replace the belt at 804 Auto Repair as advised to avoid undue repairs.

Losing your power steering while driving in North Chesterfield can be unsettling – just remember that you can still steer, it'll just be harder. Check with your service advisor at 804 Auto Repair to see if it's time to service your vehicle's power steering system.

In addition to power steering service, at 804 Auto Repair we offer comprehensive automotive services.

Did my research by searching on Google for the best rated auto-repair shop near me. This came up immediately. Small size auto repair business, but EXCELLENT customer service. Very professional. I love their transparency with your vehicle maintenance. I love how they provide legit price quotes and service fees, and the owner Eric is actually the head mechanic. First time there he made me and my fiance feel very welcomed and comfortable. It's hard to find auto mechanics who do good work, and can be trustworthy. I definitely recommend this business, and if you guys read this review I APPRECIATE YOUR SERVICE for both of our vehicles.... 5 STARS!
