Power Steering Pump Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Power Steering Pump all about?

The power steering system enables you to turn the steering wheel easily. When the car is not running, it is extremely hard to turn the steering wheel. When the car is running, it is the power steering system that helps you turn the steering wheel so easily. The power steering system includes: power steering pump, fluid, belt, hoses and steering gear (rack and pinion).

The steering gear connects the steering wheel to the suspension stub axles. When you turn the steering wheel, the power steering pump sends fluid to the steering gear that applies the pressure needed to turn the wheels.

If the power steering pump leaks, the steering will become harder to turn. You will see fluid (power steering fluid) underneath your car.

Power Steering

Keep in mind:

  • When the power steering pump is replaced, the power steering belt and hoses should be inspected as well.
  • A mechanic should flush the power steering fluid when replacing the pump, and should then add the specific power steering fluid that your system requires.

How it's done:

  • Verify that the power steering pump is bad.
  • Remove and replace power steering pump.
  • Add power steering fluid and bleed the system if needed.
  • Inspect power steering belt and reservoir.
  • Inspect rack and pinion system.
  • Check for fluid leaks.
  • Test drive the car.

Our recommendation:

Changing the steering fluid on a regular basis can prolong the life of the power steering pump.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Power Steering Pump?

  • Turning the steering wheel is difficult.
  • Power steering fluid is leaking.
  • Groaning-like noise when you turn the steering wheel.

How important is this service?

The power steering system aids the driver in steering their vehicle. The force required to turn the wheels of a car is very large, which is why it is so difficult to turn the steering wheel when your car is turned off. When your vehicle is running, the power steering system helps you get enough power to turn the wheels. When you turn your steering wheel, the power steering pump sends steering fluid to the rack and pinion steering gear. In the steering gear, this fluid applies the pressure that is needed to turn the wheels. This makes it so that it is easy for you to turn the steering wheel and control your vehicle.

When the power steering pump fails, the system cannot send fluid to the steering gear, and your steering will be unassisted. Driving your car with unassisted steering is not only a hassle, but also unsafe.

Tien
19 years of experience
Mr. Phan was great. came for an inspection, and let me know what really was wrong with my car. i had been told differing things from different people i know suggesting some of the same problems, but i figured why risk it. figured better to have a professional come out to diagnose the problems. Mr. Phan is just that, a professional. he thoroughly looked over my car according to my reported problems with it. very nice, and knowledgeable guy. in the end the suggestions i had received from friends and the like weren't even close to the problems wrong on my vehicle. Tien saved me a lot of grief and aggravation in my guessing as to what is wrong, and what needs definitely be fixed.

Noe

Noe was very professional and explained the entire process to me before he went about his work. He did a great job and was done quickly so my daughter and I were able to start our day earlier than I thought we would be. I also want to mention that he was genuinely nice and not condescending, which is not the common experience I've had with other mechanics. Overall the experience exceeded my expectations. Thanks Noe!

Great first experience with YourMechanic. Jason is pleasant and knowledgeable, he worked through the rain to mount new brake rotors on my vehicle - in the rain, no less. I would request Jason to return for future services again.

Chet

Took my outback to a subaru dealership and was told my CJ boots were leaking and needed replaced. Chet inspected the CV boots and reported that it was the rack and pinion assy that was leaking and not the CV boot assy. He saved me $$$ and repaired what was needed. I just found my mechanic!
