Issue / Question:
The service adviser at the dealership suggested to drain and flush the power steering system. The mileage will be at 45,000 miles at the next oil change service. I have never heard of flushing this system. I looked in my owner’s manual and there is no mention of this type of service. I am not having any problems with the steering. My question to you is do you think this is a beneficial service? I’m looking forward to your advice and opinion.

Answer:

I do, replacing the power steering system fluid around every 60 K. This keeps wear to a minimum and the seals in the power steering system from leaking.
