Making sure your power steering is working correctly is very important for both safety and comfort when driving. To ensure that your power steering is working optimally, it is recommended that you check your power steering fluid level once a month. While power steering fluid levels fluctuate when the engine is hot versus when it is cold, it is the safest and most efficient to check your power steering fluid level when your engine is cold. To do so, pop your hood and locate the reservoir, and simply read the level between minimum and maximum. If your fluid level is in between the minimum and maximum marks, but you are still experiencing issues, it may be time for a power steering flush.

If your your vehicle is difficult to turn
If your steering wheel shutters
If your vehicle is making loud, squealing noises when you turn
