Are you noticing noises and/or friction in your steering wheel while you’re driving? Are you leaving oil stains where you park? If you notice any changes in steering, let us investigate immediately. Your power steering should have a safety check yearly and should have the steering fluid replaced.


Healthy power steering fluid is vital to your steering system and your safety. If your fluid is low or leaking, the whole system could suffer serious damage, which is a costly repair. With regular servicing and high quality fluid is the most simple and cost effective way to prolong its lifetime.

The most common cause of power steering problems is simply low fluid levels. No fluid means friction and, over time, the system breaks down. But the solution is also simple! At Nova Automatics we recommend your power steering system should be serviced every 12 months or 20,000kms, and when a new rack is installed a new pump and filter is installed to ensure total reliability.

So don’t wait for a power steering catastrophe, talk to Nova Automatics today and have your steering system checked or book your annual service.
