Prestone recently launched a line of synthetic power-steering fluids that the manufacturer says is designed for optimal performance in domestic and international vehicles. All the new products are compatible with the original factory-fill fluids.
The power-steering fluids have anti-wear additives to protect pump components, and include antioxidants to prevent sludge formation, Prestone says, as well as anti-foam agents to prevent pump cavitation and steering loss, while corrosion inhibitors protect metal components.
Potentially of particular interest to classic and collector car owners, the lineup includes power-steering fluid designed specifically for GM, Ford and Chrysler vehicles. The full-synthetic formulation contains the latest additive chemistry to maintain performance while delivering oxidative stability for extended fluid life, according to Prestone.
The are also introducing a power-steering fluid designed for European vehicles, for extreme temperatures and suitable for use where CHF 7.1, 202 or 11S fluids are recommended.
