Auto Systems and Repair

The power steering system uses an additional power source to provide steering assistance when the driver turns the steering wheel.


Key Component — Power Steering Pump

The power steering pump provides the hydraulic pressure necessary to operate the power steering system. The pressure is then converted into mechanical force in the steering gear or rack and pinion (depending on the vehicle). When the driver turns the steering wheel, the pressure helps push the wheels in the desired direction. More >>
