    Common Problems

    Steering systems, like any high-pressure hydraulic system, can be prone to leaks. Most leaks occur at one of the three seals- one where your steering column enters the rack and pinion assembly, then a seal where each tie rod attaches. This is typically due to dryness, shrinking, or misalignment.

  • How do cars absorb impact?

    Typically, crumple zones are located in the front part of the vehicle, to absorb the impact of a head-on collision, but they may be found on other parts of the vehicle as well.
  • How serious is undercarriage damage?

    For instance, undercarriage rust is a serious problem that could render your vehicle unsafe to drive. Repairing it could easily cost between $2,000 and $3,000. Staying on top of your vehicle's condition pays off with lower repair bills in the future.13 Dec 2021
  • What causes a steering column to go bad?

    Too much and your valves and seals could collapse under the pressure. Not enough and the fluid can't exert the force needed to turn your car. Replacing your fluid on time will help prevent this issue, but any leaks can cause a loss of fluid that will ultimately lead to power steering failure.27 Mar 2017

  • Why do cars crumple on impact?

    Crumpling allows the vehicle to take a little longer before coming to a stop, in effect lowering the average impact force, and increasing the survival space for the belted passengers.
