What is the Steering of a Car?

Your car's steering and suspension are responsible for ensuring safe and stable handling, and the steering system needs to be in good working order for you to be able to drive with accuracy. That means that each component needs to be fully operational to prevent drift and enable precise turns, among preventing other issues.

If your car steering wheel is shaking, the car is steering to the left, the car steering feels light, or the car steering feels heavy, it's time to get it checked. 

What are the 3 Types of Steering?

Car steering comes in three different basic types.

These are:

  • Hydraulic power steering (HPS) - Where hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump assists the turning the steering wheel
  • Electric power hydraulic steering (EPHS) - A hybrid of hydraulic and electric powered steering. An electric motor powers the hydraulic pump rather than a belt from the engine
  • Fully electric power steering (EPS) - An electric motor replaces the hydraulic pump delivering a fully electric power steering system

What are the Signs of Steering Column Problems?

Car steering problems can arrive when you least expect them. 

These are the signs to look out for:

  • Your wheels are not in balance - A garage can fix this by easily having them realign and re-balance the wheels, fixing the car steering tracking
  • Ball Joints - Clunking sounds could be the ball joints in your steering mechanism
  • Damaged Brakes - If your discs and pads or drums and shoes are damaged or broken, the vibration might be present in the car's steering mechanism
  • Worn tread - If your tread is worn and uneven, it might cause steering issues
  • Loose Lugs and Bolts - Check your lugs and bolts are properly tightened
  • Worn Strut Bearings - If you hear a knocking sound, it could be worn strut bearings. They need to be replaced at the same time
