About Power steering Reservoirs
The power steering system in a vehicle is what enables the driver to turn the wheel easily. The system is made up of various components, which all combine to provide the hydraulic pressure that is necessary for its operation. These parts include belts, hoses, a power steering reservoir, a power steering pump, steering gear (either rack and pinion or a power steering box) and hydraulic fluid. The steering gear connects the steering wheel to the stub axles and when the steering wheel is turned with the engine running the pump sends hydraulic fluid to the steering gear, which applies the pressure required to turn the wheels.
Because the entire system depends on hydraulic pressure, one of its most important components is the power steering reservoir, where the hydraulic fluid is stored. If the power steering reservoir leaks or the fluid level becomes low, steering the car will become more difficult because there will be insufficient pressure to operate the system.
Signs that there may be a leak in the power steering reservoir include evidence of hydraulic fluid beneath the car, greater difficulty in steering and a groaning sound when the steering wheel is turned. If any of these indicators become evident, the power steering system should be inspected to ascertain whether the problem lies in a leak in the power steering reservoir or elsewhere in the system.
- It might not be the accessory that everyone needs, but for BMW drivers in South Africa who were worried about carjackers, the 'Blaster' was a flamethrower that shot huge flames from either side of the car. Not currently available in the UK…
- Everyone knows what the BMW logo looks like, but do you know what it represents? Most people think it's inspired by propellers (because of BMW's aviation history), but it's really just the same colour scheme as the Bavarian flag and was designed to showcase Bavaria.
- The BMW company was founded way back in 1916 and originally manufactured engines for planes. High demand for plane engines during WWI was good news for BMW, but they carried on making plane engines right up until 1945.
- The BMW 3.0CSL was sold in the 70s and had the unusual addition of a spoiler that was kept in the boot. The owner could install it if they wanted to, but BMW couldn't sell the car with the spoiler attached because of road laws!
- One of the reasons older BMWs keep their value is because it's easy to get spare parts for even the oldest models. That's because BMW has carried on making car parts, even for cars that were built in WWII.
