What is Steering Systems
Are you having problems with your steering wheel? Problems with your steering wheel can interfere with your driving and safety. The steering wheel is the crucial link between you and the car and enables you to turn the wheels of the vehicle in the direction that you want. Earlier vehicles had heavy steering wheels making it difficult to drive. Today most cars have a power steering system that is hydraulic-based and operated by a power steering pump that helps wheels to turn with much less effort. This system circulates pressurized working fluid, power steering fluid, to the steering rack. If your car does not respond to your steering or serves to one side and shows signs of wearing out of tires, you will need to check if the rack and pinion steering system is functioning well. Other parts to check are the control arm, pitman arm, steering column, tie rod ends, sway bar and sway bar link which gives the chassis stability.
