Hydraulic steering rack frequently fails - how to maintain daily

The steering system will always affect the driving safety. The steering system of the hydraulic steering rack will inevitably fail during driving. We often do maintenance on the car, but often ignore the maintenance of the steering system. At present, the power steering system can be divided into three categories: mechanical hydraulic steering system, electro-hydraulic steering system and electric power steering system. For different types of power steering systems, the way of maintenance is also different.

 The common faults of the steering system are nothing but abnormal noise, oil leakage, difficulty in returning direction, heavy steering, and turning.

 We should use and maintain the hydraulic steering mechanism correctly when using power steering rack. Specifically, do the following:

 1. Regularly check the amount of steering hydraulic oil, and find that the missing ones should be added in time. At the same time, the hydraulic oil cups and filter elements should be cleaned regularly to prevent the hydraulic oil from being dirty or deteriorated.

 2. Regularly check the tightness of the steering pump belt to see if it is damaged. If it should be replaced in time.

 3. Pay attention to check the wear of the tubing to avoid air ingress or oil leakage.

 4. When the hydraulic steering gear is turning, try to avoid “killing” the direction, especially when turning in place, leave a certain margin to ensure that the hydraulic steering system is in normal working condition.
