ACDelco Aftermarket Professional Steering
Do I need to change my power steering fluid regularly, even if there are no symptoms of problems with the system?
No. It is not necessary to regularly check power steering fluid unless there is a leak suspected in the system or an unusual noise is heard. A fluid loss in this system could indicate a problem. Have the system inspected and repaired. Always reference your vehicles service information for appropriate maintenance intervals.
Will I be unable to steer my vehicle if my power steering goes out?
No. You will be able to steer your vehicle if the power steering goes out, but it will require more effort, especially at lower speeds. If your power steering goes out, have the system inspected and repaired as soon as possible.
Should my power steering system be flushed every time it undergoes maintenance or component replacement?
Yes. The power steering fluid should be flushed whenever a component is being replaced or the system has become contaminated.
Can using the incorrect power steering fluid cause damage to my power steering system?
Yes. Use of the incorrect fluid may damage the vehicle, and the damages may not be covered by the vehicle or component’s warranty. Always use the correct fluid listed in the manufacturer’s service literature.
Can I install an ACDelco Professional Power Steering Seal Kit as an alternative to replacing the entire component?
Yes, if there is no damage to the hard parts of the system. Have the system checked by a service professional.
