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.

Citroen trivia

  • In 2019, the Citroën DS was voted in the UK as the 'coolest car ever', with writers and marketers calling it the Brigitte Bardot of cars. In second place was the E-Type Jag…
  • Between 1925 and 1935, the Eiffel Tower was just a big, pointy billboard with the word 'Citroën' in bright lights from top to bottom. This was the first use of lights to advertise on the tower, and Citroën renewed the adverts every year until they were bought out by Michelin.
  • Thanks to Citroën, the French driver Sebastien Loeb is the single most successful driver in the entire history of the World Rallying Championship. Nine consecutive driver's titles were won by Loeb in the time between 2004 and 2012, driving cars such as the Xsara, the C4, and the DS3.
  • If you went into a Citroën showroom in the 20s, there's a good chance that you would have been given a letter that was personally handwritten by Andre Citroën himself, proclaiming the benefits of the car models. This one act of marketing genius is credited with being responsible for thousands of closed sales.
  • French president Charles de Gaulle's life was saved by Citroën not once, but twice. In 1961 a Citroën DS managed to stay intact despite there being a bomb made of plastic explosive, dynamite, oil, and nails. It even managed to drive away from the scene. In 1962, de Gaulle was attacked again, this time with machine guns, but the Citroën again managed to get away from the would-be assassins.
