Car Electronic Power Steering Maintenance

Before I discuss more about the maintenance of Electronic Power Steering device, let us know the history of this technology present in Indonesia. This device was first used on the Mazda Van trend in 1994, and now you can see almost all of the latest cars to use it.

Excellence of this device is, do not overload the engine work. Because it works using the principle of electric current, so the engine load is lighter. And in terms of easier maintenance, because it does not need to check the power steering oil level. And so much more stable handling.
And of course there are Shortcomings.  Water is the main enemy of this device. And damaged roads also become an enemy that you should avoid for the EPS (Electronic Power Steering). Water on the streets usually contains harmful materials such as sand and other impurities. So water is easily slipped through the Power Steering O – ring.
Because of the risk of damaging the EPS, you should avoid damaged roads and puddles. At least reduce the speed on the street like this

The characteristics of Damage Electronic Power Steering.
At EPS, different signs of damage to the Hydraulic Power Steering. The hydraulic system when it breaks then the steering wheel will instantly feel heavy. But in contrast to EPS, damage is characterized by the number of spacing around the steering wheel, which sometimes accompanied by the emergence of crick-crick sound. Whereas, rotation the steering wheel still feels light.
Notice if this condition occurs in your favorite car, immediately check and should not be allowed. About the price quite expensive, for the Nissan Grand Livina valued IDR 7.5 million. Rather hefty price.

Hopefully this article on Electronic Power Steering Maintenance can be useful and helpful for you, thanks Wassalamualaikum..
