Power Steering Fluid ChangeDuring a power steering fluid flush at Goodyear Auto Service, we will first conduct an inspection for any potential fluid leaks. During the flush, our service technicians will drain the old fluid, flush the components and add new fluid. Scheduling your appointment today will help improve steering performance and extend power steering component life.
WHAT OUR POWER STEERING FLUSH IS AND WHEN YOU NEED IT
No matter where you’re headed (in life and on the road) good steering makes a world of difference in how you get there. So, if you suspect a problem with your power steering, bring it to us for a free steering fluid check.
Signs You May Have Low Power Steering Fluid:
- Your vehicle has a power steering fluid leak (power steering fluid color is a clear- or amber-colored fluid that smells like burnt marshmallow)
- It’s hard to steer, or steering is less responsive
- You hear noises when you turn your steering wheel
- You’re past your vehicle manufacturer’s recommended replacement interval

How Often Should You Change Power Steering Fluid?
Goodyear Auto Service suggests a power steering fluid flush once, early in a vehicle’s life (before hitting 50,000 miles) to remove contaminants and help extend component life, and then again at 50,000 miles or greater based on your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations.
Of course, if you notice power steering problems, fluid leaks, or uneven tire wear, you should make an appointment to see us at your earliest convenience.
