2001 Mercedes Benz S430 Base V8 4.3L Steering Parts & Accessories
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.
Power steering pumps generate the hydraulic pressure needed by the steering assist system. Keep your pump working better and longer with quality drive belts, pulleys, fluids, and filters. If your pump is worn or damaged, install a new or remanufactured replacement from one of our trusted suppliers.
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?
Power steering sensors monitor systemhydraulic pressuren, and rotational movement in electrical-assist power steering systems.
