Power Steering Repair

Power Steering RepairPower steering sometimes referred to as power assisted steering, helps drivers maintain control of their vehicle during even the most adverse road conditions. Power steering systems provide enhanced steering assistance that allows drivers to turn their cars and trucks with relative ease. Without the assistance of power steering, the gliding turns you once knew will become difficult, making power steering repair and failure very evident when they happen. The average American weighs 180.62 lbs according to the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the average weight of a car is 4,079 lbs. That’s almost 23 times the weight of the driver! This is precisely why power steering systems are critical for our daily commutes. The amount of torque needed to turn your steering wheel would be much greater than the amount of torque needed to turn a steering wheel with power steering making driving more difficult and demanding.
