Nulon Power Steering Fluid (PSF) is a mineral based fluid that has been formulated to suit all power steering systems that require a Dexron® fluid. Nulon PSF contains enhanced anti-corrosion and anti wear additives to ensure optimum protection. It is an excellent everyday choice for Australian conditions.
Power steering systems are generally very reliable and failures are rare, so preventative maintenance is often neglected. Manufacturers rarely mention power steering maintenance in their service schedules. A little preventative maintenance goes a long way to ensuring trouble free operation and long service life. Inspections should be carried out at each service. Fluid level should be checked and the fluid should also be checked for cleanliness. If the fluid is dirty it should be changed, as dirt and sludge are major threats to smooth operation. Also, drive belts should be checked for condition and correct tension. Pulleys, mounting brackets and hoses should be checked for condition as well.
Power steering systems typically contain only a small volume of lubricating fluid, and that fluid is subjected to quite harsh conditions, particularly heat, moisture and contamination. Periodically removing old, dirty and degraded power steering fluid and replenishing it with Nulon Power Steering Fluid will significantly extend the life of the entire power steering system.
