Power steering fluid is as vital as other fluids in your Jaguar, yet it is the most overlooked. As a responsible Jaguar owner, you know that maintenance services are crucial to your vehicle. For that reason, you should include the power steering fluid check on your regular maintenance list.
Power steering fluid is a hydraulic fluid used in the power steering system to create links between the steering wheel and the front wheels of your Jaguar. The system reduces the effort you need to apply to turn the wheels. The power steering fluid, just like oil, deteriorates after a while and should be replaced. A failure can cause the whole power steering system of your Jaguar to fail.
The best answer to this question lies in your owner’s manual. Your Jaguar’s owner’s manual understates how often you should change the fluid and the recommended types and brands best for your model. Generally for Jaguars, the steering fluid needs replacement every 50,000 miles.
If you ever think of doing a maintenance service for your Jaguar on your own, especially when it is about steering fluid, you’d better think again. This is one service that you are highly likely to get wrong.
It requires a level of technical know-how to flush the power steering system. Moreover, you might not be able to locate the power steering fluid reservoir if you are not familiar with Jaguar components. Make it easier for yourself and avoid the risk of damaging your Jaguar by contacting our specialist to inspect the condition of your steering fluid and replace it if necessary.
While you may be waiting for the time or mileage stated by your Jaguar’s owner’s manual before you replace your power steering fluid, the fluid might go bad prematurely. Consequently, your Jaguar’s performance and efficiency will drop. Even worse, it puts you at risk of an accident.
