Power Steering Repair

Power steering is one of those things most drivers don’t fully appreciate until it stops working. Trust us when we say you don’t want to wait until yours fails to address the situation. Doing so can compromise your safety – and that of your passengers – behind the wheel.

Don’t trust your power steering repair to any shop in Albuquerque. Rio Grande Auto’s technicians can service domestic or foreign vehicles at all stages of power steering failure.

Warning signs of power steering failure

Like other crucial systems in your car, there are warning signs that your power steering needs urgent attention. Most drivers know how their cars handle, so they notice when something is off. If you’ve never experienced power steering failure before, some of the most common warning signs include:

A groaning or moaning sound when the wheel is turning.
A loud screeching noise during turns.
A reddish puddle under your car (this is power steering fluid).
A squealing noise when you first start your vehicle.
A slow responding or stiff steering wheel.
A vibration in the steering wheel when the engine is idle.
If you’re experiencing any of these issues, give Rio Grande Auto a call to schedule a check-up. Our technicians can quickly assess your vehicle and let you know if your power steering needs a little TLC.
