What is a Power Steering Pump?

Ever tried to drive a car without power steering? Yeah, not feeling so good about the muscles anymore, are you?

That’s because your car has power steering. Here’s the super simple rundown: Your steering system relies on fluid for added pressure when you steer. When you move the wheel, the fluid moves towards the steering gear, creating high pressure, and therefore power.

And who do you think is responsible for pressurizing and moving the fluid? That’s a rhetorical question. The power steering pump is obviously the answer.

Symptoms of failing Power Steering Pumps

Fluid leaks

If the ground under your car starts looking like the bed at your first sleepover, then your car may also have sprung a leak. A malfunctioning power steering pump will often result in leaks of red or brownish-red fluid, though some pumps may use clear fluid.

Whining noise

No, cars don’t have feelings, but yes, they can still whine. And if your car is whining or groaning, especially as your RPMs increase, then your power steering pump may be calling out for the day.

How urgent is replacing a Power Steering Pump?

You’re unlikely to cause much more damage by continuing to drive your car. But, with that said, your car has power steering for a reason, and that reason is that it’s a lot easier, and a lot safer.
