Power Steering Flush
Power steering fluid service involves flushing out the old power steering fluid and adding fresh fluid. A power steering flush will help prolong the life of the power steering components. Failure to have periodic power steering flushes results in important parts like the power steering pump, the seals, power steering rack, and the O-rings wearing out.
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard vehicle maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer’s specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles – this reduces tire wear. Correctly aligned tires will reduce tire wear and ensure that your vehicle travels straight and true (without “pulling” to one side). Your tires should be checked during routine maintenance, but if you notice uneven tire wear or your car is pulling to one side, you should have a qualified automotive technician examine your vehicle.
