Nissan Power Steering Fluid Tampa FL

What Does The Power Steering Fluid In My Nissan Do?

Your vehicle's power steering fluid ensures that proper power is being sent to your wheels in order to steer it properly. With a car, truck or SUV being so heavy, it's amazing how it can be steered so easily - and that's where power steering fluid comes in handy. If you're low on fluid, or if it becomes dirty over time, the vehicle may become increasingly difficult to steer because there's nothing regulating proper power to the wheels. Keep tabs on how much power steering fluid you have! Be sure to take it in to Courtesy Nissan of Tampa - we will be happy to check this and other fluid levels on your vehicle and flush and/or replace it if necessary. With a convenient location in the heart of Tampa Bay serving Tampa, Wesley Chapel, Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Brandon, we are always minutes away from you wherever you are in the area.

How Often Should Power Steering Fluid Be Changed?

There are a few opinions depending on what car you drive or how often you drive it. Some say to have it done every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, while others recommend getting it changed every 75,000 to 100,000 miles. While opinion has changed over time about whether you should get it flushed or not, while there's some disagreement about the proper interval, it is now generally agreed that getting a flush done can help prevent the accumulation of sludge within various parts of your vehicle's steering system - putting them at risk of being damaged and rendered ineffective. That's the last yhing you need as a driver! At Courtesy Nissan, we'll take a look at your vehicle's fluid levels, inspect the quality of them, and replace it if needed.
