Electrical-assist power steering units use motor-driven pumps and sensors. Traditional, belt-driven power steering pumps have pressure sensors to increase engine idle speed when pump loads and system pressures are high.
Regularly inspect power steering hoses for signs of cracked or hardened rubber, or leaks at seals and fittings. Head off a sudden hose rupture or gradual loss of fluid that disables the power assist with exact-fit replacement hoses from ECS.
The steering rack converts steering wheel rotation into lateral movement of the steering linkages, and uses fluid pressure from the power steering pump to provide steering assist. Trust ECS Tuning to provide you with quality new and remanufactured racks, plus repair parts and recommended steering fluids.
Power steering reservoirs store fluid for the pump and rack, and may contain a filter or strainer to keep the fluid clean. Reservoirs may crack and leak from heat and vibration, and filter replacement requires a fresh reservoir, in some applications. Why not include one in your next fluid service?
Steering shafts and flexible couplers link the steering wheel to the rack. Shafts are commonly replaced when they become loose, bind, or are bent by collision impact. Trust ECS Tuning to provide you with quality replacements for these important components.
