What Does the Steering System Do?
The steering system is incredibly important as it takes the information you provide through maneuvering on the actual steering wheel, then transmits this information through the steering rack in the steering column, then applies that force to the wheels to make the desired movement. Said steering rack may be hydraulic or electric, dependent on your vehicle. Additional components that help the steering system do its job are the power steering pump & lunes, allowing a smoother feel on the steering wheel itself.
How Often Should a Steering System Be Serviced?
As with all parts and components on your Toyota, your steering system needs service as it gets on in age to ensure its proper working order and that it operates at its desired potential. Please consult your owner’s manual for specifics on steering service intervals, but as a general rule, it should be serviced every 80,000 km, or two years. If you have any questions about when to get service, please contact our service team.
