When a Leak Can Have an Effect on Steering

Different leaks are going to be warning signs for different issues. For instance, if you have a power steering fluid leak, then you are going to have to make sure that you are getting it taken care of. This can result in various problems on the road.

One thing about the power steering fluid is that it can be hard to describe with all of the different types of power steering fluid being manufactured by different companies. However, if you suspect that you might be leaking power steering fluid, then you must check the reservoir. This will have the high and low markings.

If you have low power steering fluid, then the power steering pump is going to make a whining noise when you turn the wheel. Another sign is a tightness in the steering wheel when you are trying to turn at slow speeds or while you are parking.
