Does Power Steering Fluid Need To Be Replaced

You need to know the warning signs that indicate you need power steering fluid replacement. The first sign is when you notice your steering becoming harder. Difficulty controlling the steering wheel is another sign that you need to replace the steering fluid.
Whenever you hear noises like grunts, squeaking, or scraping, it is a sign you should replace the power steering fluid. The power steering fluid lubricates parts of the power steering system like pistons, valves e.t.c. When the liquid is contaminated, lubrication will be poor hence the steering will produce awkward signs signaling a fluid flush.
In rare cases, you will notice fluid leaking from the power steering system. When you see a red liquid in your garage or driveway, it is a power steering fluid leak. You should plug the leak and replace the fluid as it will be contaminated.
